Butternut Squash & Cheddar Bread Pudding

We’ve been getting butternut squash in our veggie box for the last several weeks, so I’ve been trying to find lots of different butternut squash recipes to try. I have to say– I actually haven’t gotten tired of butternut squash (yet)! It is such a versatile squash, with a really sweet, delicate taste. I love it! I’ve made soups, butternut squash souffle, butternut squash maple-ginger pancakes, butternut squash-spinach gratin, and probably some other things that I can’t remember. Tonight I made a butternut squash-chedder bread pudding, based on this recipe on Epicurious. I adapted the recipe based on what I had on hand: I cut the recipe in half, used soy milk instead of half and half, omitted the white wine, added 2 tbsp. nutritional yeast, used regular onion instead of shallots, and used collard greens instead of the kale. Also, instead of the baguette, I used a mixture of 2-day old 7-grain bread, and seasoned croutons (since that was what I had on hand). It turned out delicious!!
