Butternut Squash Soufflé

Butternut Squash Soufflé

This savory dish, with just a touch of sweetness, was well received at our tasting table. Try pairing it with roasted pork and a glass of Riesling or Pinot Noir.

  • Yield: Makes 6 servings
  • Cook time:15 Minutes
  • Prep time:20 Minutes
  • Cool:25 Minutes
  • Bake:1 Hour

Ingredients

  • 1 large butternut squash (about 2 lb.)
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup light sour cream
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh sage*
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Preparation

1. Remove stem from squash. Cut squash lengthwise into 4 pieces; remove and discard seeds. Cook squash in boiling water to cover in a large saucepan over medium-high heat 10 to 15 minutes or until tender. Drain well; let cool for 25 minutes or until completely cool. Remove and discard peel.

2. Process squash and eggs in a food processor until smooth, stopping to scrape down sides. Add sour cream and remaining ingredients; process 20 to 30 seconds or until smooth. Pour mixture into a lightly greased 8-inch square baking dish.

3. Bake at 350° for 55 to 60 minutes or until set.

*1 tsp. ground sage may be substituted.

Note: You can substitute 3 (12-oz.) packages frozen butternut squash puree for fresh squash. Omit Step 1, and prepare frozen squash according to package directions. Proceed with Steps 2 and 3, reducing butter to 2 Tbsp. and baking time to 45 to 50 minutes. For testing purposes only, we used McKenzie's Frozen Butternut Squash Puree.
