Potato and Winter Squash Mash

J. White Harris


Last summer I grew Lakota Squash and wound up with 35 basketball size squashes. I have worked on several recipes to use this delicious squash. In this recipe I combined squash and potatoes for a delicious side dish. You can use any winter squash in this recipe.
