Mashed Squash with Caramelized Onions
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.Advertisement
Place squash cut-side down on the prepared pan. Bake until the flesh is very tender, 45 to 55 minutes.
Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over high heat. Add onions and salt; cook, stirring frequently, until the onions begin to brown, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook, stirring frequently, until the onions are golden brown and very soft, about 15 minutes more. Stir in vinegar and pepper and cook a few more minutes. Remove from heat, cover and keep warm.
When the squash is cool enough to handle, scrape the flesh into the skillet. Return to medium-low heat and mash, stirring to incorporate the onions.
Make Ahead Tip: Transfer to a lightly oiled baking dish, cover with foil and refrigerate for up to 1 day. To reheat, drizzle with 1 teaspoon olive oil, cover and bake in a 350°F oven for about 30 minutes.
Easy cleanup: Recipes that require cooking spray can leave behind a sticky residue that can be hard to clean. To save time and keep your baking sheet looking fresh, line it with a layer of foil before you apply the cooking spray.
