The thing with any winter squash (for me at least) is that I always buy them with the best intentions, but never seem to get around to actually eating them. For example, I’ve had a butternut squash sitting in my potato bin since November. It’s almost April.
The other day, I finally got around to roasting it, hoping it would be done in time for dinner. It wasn’t and a big bowl of roasted mashed squash has been in my fridge for a couple days. Not wanting to let it rot in my fridge like so many other things I decided this morning it would be perfect for some muffins.
These muffins are simple and savory with just a hint of sweetness. Just the way I like my muffins. If you like yours sweeter feel free to add more sugar.
