I like squash but I've prepared this for people who did not like squash and they are surprised how they do like it. This particular recipe comes from my late husband's aunt who was a fantastic cook.

Ingredients For aunt bessie's squash kugel (pudding)

How To Make aunt bessie's squash kugel (pudding)

  • 1
    Bring squash and onions to a boil and cook just until done. Drain extra well into a sieve.
  • 2
    Mash with a potato masher. Drain more if too watery. Pour from the sieve the squash-onion mixture back into the pot and add the rest of the ingredients.
  • 3
    Pour into a casserole or other baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for about 1/2 hour or until set. The pan you cook in determines how fast it will be done. If it is thicker in a smaller pan it will take longer than if it is spread out into a shallow pan. It should be golden brown on top.
