Butternut Squash Soup Recipe
This is a recipe that I got from watching one of my favorite TV chefs Alton Brown. This has been pulled from his site on the Cooking Network.com I have made some additions to this recipe noted in the next paragraph. Give it a try it’s easy and great. Just be careful when you skin the squash when it comes out of the oven. HOT! I use oven mits and a big spoon.
This is an easy recipe to make. You will be proud to serve this, and family members will be impressed as it is from scratch. I first served it as a starter course at Thanksgiving. It was an immediate favorite. Because of the smooth consistency children to older adults will enjoy this dish. (you will have hold back on some of the ingredients for the young ones) I added a quarter clove of garlic to each squash half during the baking process. Also a pinch of fresh sage and I put a cinnamon stick on the pan. Thanks Alton!
