"Squashed Potatoes"

That is what my husband calls them at least...

Our mashed potato solution:

Really it is just 2-3 parts potato to 1 part butternut squash (helps with moisture and a good way to sneak in some veggies/fiber). Cut into cubes and boiled just as if you were making normal mashed potatoes. Boil until very soft, and strain off most of the water. Leave enough to keep things moist after mashing (it may be more than you expect at first).
I add 1-2 bullion cubes (just some salt and garlic powder would be good for vegans), olive oil, and a little ground pepper. Mash mash mash...

This is one of Jack's favorite side dishes or a great late afternoon snack. It reheats much better than normal mashed potatoes too.
