Butternut Squash Souffle Side Dish Instructions

  1. Puree butternut squash with blender and set aside to let cool.
  2. In a small saucepan, heat cream, milk, nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger and vanilla to a simmer.
  3. Meanwhile, in a separate bowl, whisk yolks and sugar until pale yellow.
  4. Add a cup of the hot cream mixture very slowly into yolks while continuing to whisk.
  5. Then add yolks and cream back to saucepan and keep stirring over low heat.
  6. Mixture should thicken in a few minutes, then turn off heat and incorporate into squash puree.

  8. Place a baking sheet in the oven.

  12. Carefully scoop your mixture into the ramekins up to the rims.
  13. Bake on lower rack for about 25 minutes, or until tops are golden brown.
