Dawn's notes for this recipe:
This is a hearty bread that is excellent in the fall when the garden vegetables are ripe. The butternut squash is a wonderful surprise. We often have this with soup or stew.

In small bowl, dissolve yeast in water.
2
In mixing bowl, combine squash, milk, butter, egg, br. sugar and salt. Mix well. Add yeast mixture and 1 1/2 cups flour; mix well.

Combine glaze ingredients and brush over bread.
