  • In a medium mixing bowl beat egg whites with an electric mixer on medium to high speed until stiff peaks form (tips stand straight). Gently fold some of the beaten egg whites into squash mixture to lighten. Fold in remaining egg whites. Pour batter into the prepared baking dish. Bake about 40 minutes or until top is golden and center feels firm when lightly touched. Cool slightly. If desired, drizzle with honey.

Tips

Don't like cinnamon? Use a pinch of freshly grated nutmeg instead. Want added texture? Toss in 2 cups cooked corn kernels. Not a fan of carrots? Replace them with turnips.
