Enjoy delicious, creamy mashed butternut squash, made with only a few ingredients. This tasty veggie dish is EASY to make - you'll love it!
Use vegetable peeler to remove peel from squash. Slice off both ends. Cut squash in half lengthwise; remove seeds. Cut squash into 1" cubes.
Place a steamer basket in a large saucepan filled with water (about 2" deep). Bring water to a boil. Add squash cubes to steamer basket. Cover pan, and steam squash for 30 minutes, OR until squash is tender. Once done, remove squash from pan; transfer to large bowl.
While squash is cooking, combine brown sugar, nutmeg, allspice, salt and pepper in small bowl, AND melt butter in separate bowl. Set aside.
Use a potato masher to mash the hot squash, until mixture becomes smooth, and NOT lumpy! Add melted butter and spices; continue mashing. Once fully combined, let squash rest for 5 minutes to give butter and spices a chance to permeate squash.
After flavors "mingle" for 5 minutes, re-heat squash in microwave for about 1 minute. Taste; add additional salt, if desired, to suit your own preference. Serve, and enjoy!
