This is very much like Thanksgiving sweet potatoes with the marshmallows. you're gonna love it. Goes especially well with pork, with cranberries on the side.

  • 2 C. cooked butternut squash
  • 2 eggs, separated
  • 3/4 C. firmly-packed light brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 C. evaporated milk
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 1 t. nutmeg
  • 1 t. ground ginger
  • Marshmallows for topping (optional)

Beat egg yolks with sugar until light in color. Add squash, milk, and seasonings. Beat egg whites until stiff and fold into squash mixture. Pour into a greased (1 1/2 qt.) casserole. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Place marshmallows over top of casserole and return to oven until they begin to brown.
