Butternut Squash Mashed Potato with Raisin

When I cook steak or pork chop for our dinner,I will always make mashed potato as the side dish.But this time I decided to try something different then regular mashed potato.I never mixed butternut squash with mashed potato before and the experiment result is pretty impressive !! Butternut squash is available whole year long and it's easy to get from any local market ,on top of that the price is pretty cheap. If you're bore with regular mashed potato,why not give a try to Butternut Squash Mashed Potato? It's taste creamy and nutty!!

1 butternut squash,about 3-4 lbs,roasted and mashed
5-6 medium size Idaho potatoes,peeled,boiled and mashed
1 cup whole milk,plus extra if needed
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup raisin
1:Cut butternut squash into halve,apply some oil on it before roast in oven at 375 F for 45 minutes or until soft.Then use a large spoon to remove the flesh before blend with milk until fine.
2:Peel and cut potato into small chunk.Boil for 20 minutes or until soft then mashed while is still warm.
3:Prepare a large bowl ,add in mashed potato and blended butter squash with milk together.Use a spatula to mix well..
4:Sprinkle grated Parmesan cheese and raisin into it before serve warm with main dish.

It's funny how I never thought of adding raisin to the dish as well. Adds sweetness I bet.
