Butternut Squash Mashed Potatoes

Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time25 mins
Total Time35 mins


  • 2 pounds (900g) butternut squash*
  • 2 pounds (900g) russet potatoes
  • 3 tablespoons butter, cut into small cubes
  • 1/2 cup (120ml) low-fat milk
  • 2 tablespoons chopped chives
  • 1 tablespoon chopped sage
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Peel and seed the butternut squash. Chop into 1/2-inch cubes. Peel russet potatoes and chop into 1/2-inch cubes. Place the butternut squash and potatoes into a pot. Fill the pot with enough water to cover everything. Add 1 teaspoon of salt and bring the water to boil. Let everything simmer for about 10 minutes, until the potatoes can be easily pierced with a fork.
  • Drain the squash and potatoes and return them back to the pot. Mash the squash and potatoes using a potato masher. Add the butter cubes and stir until the butter melts. Add milk and stir until well incorporated. Season the mashed potatoes with salt and pepper to taste. Mix in chopped chives and sage. Serve immediately.


*If you are using butternut squash that has been pre-chopped, use 1.75 pounds of butternut squash cubes.
The butternut squash releases a lot of moisture, so you may notice some liquids once you let the mashed potatoes sit for a while. Just give everything a stir before serving.
