4 Servings


  • 2 pkg. (12 oz. each) frozen winter squash, thawed
  • 3 Tbsp. brown sugar, divided
  • 1 cup Post Shredded Wheat cereal, crushed
  • 3 Tbsp. pecan pieces
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 2 Tbsp. margarine, melted


  1. Mix squash and 1 Tbsp. of the brown sugar; place in 8-inch square baking pan sprayed with cooking spray.
  2. Mix remaining 2 Tbsp. brown sugar with cereal, pecans and cinnamon. Add margarine; mix well. Sprinkle over squash mixture.
  3. Bake at 350°F for 15 minutes or until squash mixture is heated through and top is lightly browned.


  • Best of Season: When fresh squash is in season, use it instead of the frozen squash. Cut 2 lb. fresh squash into cubes. Cook in boiling water for 30 minutes or until tender; drain. Continue as directed.
  • Nutrition Bonus: In just 20 minutes, you can have this hearty side dish on the table – from start to finish! And, the winter squash is a good source of vitamins A and C.
