3 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 large or 2 small butternut squash
1 large onion -- finely chopped
3/4 cup freshly grated cheddar cheese
1 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon coarse salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 large egg -- lightly beaten
1/2 teaspoon paprika
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F
Cut the butternut squash in half lengthwise, place face
down on a baking tray covered
in olive oil. Roast at 450 for 30-45 minutes,
until the skin is blistered and the
flesh tender. Remove from the oven, flip over and allow
to cool. Reduce oven heat
While squash is cooling, saute onions in 2 tbs butter until
almost caramelized, set aside.
Scoop cooled squash out of skins and into large mixing
bowl. Mash lightly.
Add onions, cheddar cheese, sour cream, salt, pepper,
beaten egg and paprika to squash; fold lightly together.
Pour into 9x11-inch glass baking dish buttered with
the last tablespoon of butter. Bake until solid,

depending on your oven). Let sit at
least 5 minutes before serving.
