4 egg yolks, beaten
1 1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded Swiss cheese, divided

Place baguette slices on an ungreased baking sheet; spread evenly with 1 tablespoon butter. Bake at 400° for 5 minutes or until crisp and golden. Let cool. Process in a blender or food processor until crumbs form. (This will yield about 1 1/2 cups crumbs.) Set aside.

Place squash, onion, and bay leaves in a Dutch oven with a small amount of water. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer, uncovered, 10 minutes or until squash is tender. Drain, discarding bay leaves. Sprinkle squash with salt and pepper.

Melt 6 tablespoons butter in a 4-quart saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in flour until smooth. Cook 1 minute, whisking constantly. Gradually whisk in milk; cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until thickened and bubbly. Remove from heat; stir in seasoned salt and next 3 ingredients. Gradually stir about one-fourth of hot white sauce into yolks; add to remaining hot white sauce, stirring constantly. Stir in 1 cup cheese.

Combine squash and cheese sauce. Spoon into a greased 2-quart baking dish. Combine remaining 1/2 cup cheese and reserved breadcrumbs; sprinkle over squash. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 40 minutes or until browned.

Note: If you can't find fresh yellow squash, substitute frozen sliced squash. Makes 12 servings

Post  justmecookin on Fri Aug 08, 2008 4:59 pm

Gingersnap Sweet Potatoes

6 sweet potatoes (4 pounds)
1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted
1/3 cup half-and-half
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 cup cold butter or margarine, cut into pieces
32 coarsely crushed gingersnap cookies

Cook sweet potatoes in a Dutch oven in boiling water to cover over medium heat 30 minutes or until tender. Cool; peel and mash potatoes.

Combine mashed sweet potato, 1/2 cup brown sugar, and next 4 ingredients in a mixing bowl; beat at medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth. (Or mash with a potato masher until smooth.) Spoon into a greased 2 1/2-quart or 13" x 9" baking dish.

Combine 1/2 cup brown sugar and flour. Cut in 1/4 cup cold butter with a pastry blender until crumbly. Stir in crushed gingersnaps. Sprinkle streusel over sweet potato. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 25 minutes or until streusel is lightly browned.

Make Ahead: Prepare sweet potato filling, and spoon into a greased 2 1/2-quart microwave-safe dish. Cover and chill overnight. Microwave at HIGH 10 minutes or until hot. Prepare streusel, and sprinkle over filling. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 20 minutes or until streusel is lightly browned. Makes 10 servings
