    Soooo good! I made this for Thanksgiving this year - made it the day before and kept the topping separate from the base until I popped it in the oven. The only modification that I made was I didn't add the sugar to the topping because I don't personally like sweetened squash recipes, but if you do I'm sure it's fine that way too. And it did take a bit longer to brown the topping that the recipe said. Everyone loved it and I will make this every year I host Thanksgiving!

    I made this today and was somewhat disappointed as the butter made it way too rich, and I only used half of the recommended quantity. The base was oozing butter and I had to drain it before serving. I couldn't cook it any longer as the crumbs would have burnt.

    This dish was a hit at my boyfriend's mother's dinner last night. Instead of chicken stock I used homemade duck stock which worked just fine. I made everything at home up to the last step and brought the topping with me–we had appetizers while it baked. I found the crumble topping to be a bit too moist (I would be skimpier on the water next time), but otherwise this recipe was a great way to use butternut squash. I will definitely do this one again.
