I love all the amazing flavors of fall, especially butternut squash. This souffle recipe is fluffy and airy and all around a great way to use a butternut squash. This butternut squash souffle is a great fall dish and would be a perfect side dish for your Thanksgiving dinner. I also like to make this with a simple stuffed chicken breast and a few other sides.

Are souffles hard to make?

Never made a souffle before? Don’t worry! I know the word souffle can sound kind of well, intimidating but souffles are actually pretty easy to make. There is a little bit of prep but I don’t think the recipe is difficult at all. Even if you’ve never made a souffle before you can totally master this butternut squash souffle recipe.

Do I have to use a whole butternut squash or can I use prepared cubes?

This recipe calls for two cups of roasted butternut squash. There are several ways you can roast a butternut squash. The first would be to buy pre-cut butternut squash cubes from your grocery store and roast them in the oven per the directions on the package. You could also cut a butternut squash in half and roast it for about an hour and half with a little water in your oven. I would recommend using a casserole dish, spraying it with non-stick spray, and adding a little water. You can also spray your crockpot with non-stick spray, poke a few holes in a butternut squash, add some water and let your slow cooker do it’s magic. I recommend cooking it on low for about six hours if you go that route.

Do I need a special souffle dish to make a souffle?

A question I have seen from people who have never made a souffle or haven’t made one in a long time is if they need a souffle dish to make a souffle. The answer is no. You can use any oven safe casserole dish. I have used a 1.5 quart casserole dish before although a souffle dish does make it special, it is not absolutely necessary.

  1. I haven’t eaten a lot of butternut squash. I has a butternut squash soup once and really liked it. I need to experiment with fixing it myself. Thanks for the recipe inspiration.
