Applesauce Squash Souffle

“Originally from the Boston Globe's Confidential Chat in the 1960s. My children weren't crazy about yams in any form so I used this squash recipe instead. I ended up having to double the recipe because they absolutely loved it!”

Directions

  1. Heat squash over low heat, breaking it up and stirring occasionally, until just heated through.
  2. Remove from heat and beat in butter, sugar, salt and egg yolks.
  3. Gently stir in applesauce. Set aside to cool slightly.
  4. Beat egg whites with cream of tartar until stiff but not dry.
  5. Gently fold into squash mixture.
  6. Turn into buttered 1-quart souffle dish with a collar of buttered foil around the dish to allow room for safe rising.
