  • 1 qt. mashed squash
  • 2 tablespoons butter or fat
  • ½ onion, chopped
  • ½ cup soaked bread

Bake squash following recipe No. 2. Scrape out the shells, being careful not to break the shells. Heat the butter or fat in a spider, add the onion, chopped fine, let brown lightly, add the soaked bread, mashed, and the squash. Fry all together 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from fire, acid the salt, pepper and stir in the egg well. Place mixture back into shells; sprinkle cracker crumbs and bits of butter on top and return to oven to brown nicely.
