This is my cousin Renee’s spectacular squash souffle recipe. This squash souffle is so delicious that when she makes it, everyone clamors to get some in their bellies!
Renee is my mom’s cousin, so that makes her my second cousin. Does anyone else get confused with cousin, second cousin, second cousin once removed and so on?
I certainly do. So, I just call Renee my cousin. It’s easier that way. And then I think, why am I even differentiating?
Another quirk of mine I guess.
Back to this dish.
I remember when I first had this delish squash souffle. Vividly.
A little background
My folks bought a cute cottage on a pond in Concord, VT. A year or two later, Marty and Renee, our cousins, also bought a cottage on the same pond. We used to go over to their house and have cocktails, usually bloody Mary’s – Renee is famous for those too. We’d also have dinner and Renee would make this squash souffle.
I remember forking some into my mouth and just swooning in delight. Holy moly was this squash souffle delicious.
I recently reached out to Renee to get the recipe and she sent it along. Yay for me and Christopher! We can have this souffle any time we want.
And now you can too!
On to the Squash Souffle recipe
We’ve got some thawed frozen squash, sugar, flour, almond milk and butter.
First thing I do is preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Next, I place the squash in a mixing bowl, add the sugar, flour, milk and melted butter. I take my whisk and mix it until it’s incorporated.
Then I butter a medium size baking dish and pour the squash souffle batter into it.
I pop the squash souffle into the oven and bake it 45 – 50 minutes.
Squash Souffle is Done
I’m sooo excited to eat it, so I grab a spoon and scoop some out.
I carefully place that spoonful in a little bowl and fill it until I am satisfied. I plate the rest of my meal, which happened to be chicken marsala.
Yum. The squash souffle is slightly sweet, fluffy and so delicious!
I hope you enjoyed this recipe!
