Recipe Ingredients

  • 5 Kg SPAR Freshline cubed butternut (10 x 500 g packets)
  • 2 litres SPAR fresh cream
  • 3 packets ginger-nut biscuits, broken up into small pieces

Recipe Method

  1. Preheat oven to 180 º C. Lightly coat 3 x SPAR Good Living 390 mm x 230 mm oven roasters, with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a 3 litre SPAR Good Living porcelain mixing bowl, soak the cream and biscuit pieces together for 20 minutes.

  4. Bake for 30 - 35 minutes.

Hints & Tips

Substitute 1 kg butternut for the same mass peeled and thinly sliced potato and you won't have to serve a separate starch.
