I don't know if it's like Boston Market or not but my whole family loved it. Even had a couple extra kids over for dinner and they liked it.

This was a GREAT recipe. I followed the recipe with the exception of using 2 boxes of cornbread and I use shredded cheddar cheese. The squash casserole at BM is my favorite item on their menu. This tasted much like what is at BM. This will be on my menu this Holiday Season. Thanks for sharing

Delicious, although I made some modifications: no salt, half the butter, double the cheese. Cheese was cubed, and I reserved some of it and cornbread for a delicious crusty topping.

i was disappointed with the results of this recipe. First and most importantly it was VERY salty. Maybe the result of the chicken bouillon I used? i would suggest cutting back on the added salt. The salt overload made the casserole almost inedible for me!
Secondly, this is a very time-consuming thing to cook. that may be fine for some, but for me, I'd rather make other things that take less than an hour to prepare and put in the oven!
And, finally, this didn't taste at all like the squash casserole I've had on many occasions at local Boston Markets.

I use to manage a Boston Market and it is pretty darn close to the real deal! I use this recipe all the time and it is always a hit!

Love this casserole! I halved the recipe for my first attempt. The only changes I made were cutting the butter to 4Tbsp, & substituting Herbes de Provence for the thyme, which I didn't have. Also I ommitted the boullion and used low sodium chicken broth rather than the cooking water. I'll try it w/ the thyme and even a little less butter when I make it again - which will be very soon! Thanks!

This recipe is definitely the closest to the real deal! My family loved it and it was so tasty. I would make a slight change next time. The 3 bouillon cubes might be a bit much. It tasted salty to me, so I will only use 2 next time. It can get a little greasy with all the butter, but so it the BM version. Next time I will leave out the 1/2 stick of butter. Overall, this will be my recipe from now on.

I love the Boston Market Casserole and after my wife and sister-in-law tried their own casserole dishes,I set out to find the right one. Well here it is!! This dish is soooo good I will have it time and time again. I am not a cook but I can follow directions and this is easy to make and well worth the time.

Truly yummy, made this squash casserole for Thanksgiving 2008 and everyone raved about how delicious it was. Got second billing, turkey took first. I cooked the squash in chicken broth because all the bouillon cubes had MSG. Make sure you drain the liquid from the squash really well. Used only 1 cup of chopped onions and sauted in 1/2 stick of butter. Doubled the cheese to 16 ounces (mild cheddar cubed). After you assemble all the ingredients, add the liquid the recipe calls for - don't add extra liquid even if it looks dry. When you bake the squash casserole it will release additional liquid. This is the best squash casserole I've ever made or eaten. Enjoy!
