Whipped Butternut Squash and Red Onions

October 13, 2012

This is a very simple recipe; apart from roasting the squash, it’ll take you only 15 minutes to prepare. Stick a serving spoon in and pass it around.



• 1 butternut squash (about 3 lbs)
• 1 large red onion, thinly sliced
• 4 tablespoons butter
• 3 tablespoons heavy cream
• salt
• a dash of hot sauce (optional)

Split the squash in half, scoop out the seeds, and roast in the oven at 375-400°F for about an hour, until you can easily pierce it with a knife.
Meanwhile, in a skillet, gently cook the onions in 2 tablespoons of butter for no more than 2 minutes.
Once the squash is cooked, scoop out the flesh, and whisk it in a bowl with the rest of the butter and cream. Add the onions and season with salt and hot sauce.
Put the mixture back in the skin and serve.
