DirectionsSoak the potatoes in water till you are ready to boil them, this will pull out some of the starch.Wash the squash and take a potato peeler and just go over the squash lightly “kinda like roughing the skin”Cut it into the same size pieces as the potatoes.Start to boil the potatoes, when they are almost done throw in the squash. Cook for about 2 minutes longer.Drain the potatoes and squash and put them back into the hot pot. Put the pot back on the stove and put it on a low heat to remove any remaining liquid.Start to whip the potatoes, I use a hand mixer and once they are mostly mashed, add the butter, salt, pepper, cheese & nutmeg.Continue to whip the potatoes and add the milk. You really won’t need much milk as the squash just melts into the potatoes.Once these are done, simply enjoy. I am making these with my indoor grilled pork chops with a brown sugar and apple cider vinegar glaze…yum oh!
