Butternut squash mashed potatoes 3

 1 butternut squash
 1 russet potato
 1 tablespoon(s) brown sugar
1

Remove the end of 1 butternut squash with the stem and then divide the whole thing in two by cutting it near the bulbous base. Then halve both of those sections lengthwise.

2

Scoop out the seeds from the base and cut the squash into equal parts.

3

Place the pieces in a baking dish with a bit of water, about 1/8 inch. Cover the dish with tinfoil and roast at 425 degrees for about an hour, or until the flesh is tender.

4

Remove the baking dish from the stove and let the squash cool. Once cooled, scoop out the flesh into a large mixing bow.

5

Peel 1 russet potatoes and store them in cold water. This prevents them from browning. If you happen to like that rustic look (I do!) then leaves some of the skin on.

6

Cut the potato into equal-sized pieces and place in a large pot with just enough water to cover the potatoes. Salt the water and bring it to a boil.

7

Simmer the potatoes for about 20 minutes or until a fork inserted into the potato meets no resistance. If the potato holds to the fork, they need to cook longer.

8

Drain them immediately when done, reserving the water for soup stalk. You can also use it as a vegan option for mashing the potatoes.

9

Add the cooked butternut squash, the cooked russet potato and one tablespoon of brown sugar to a large mixing bowl.

10

Mash until desired consistency.
