In a mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in water; let stand for 5 minutes. Add squash, milk, eggs, butter, sugar and salt; mix well. Gradually add 3-1/2 C. flour; beat until smooth. Add enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured board; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour. Punch dough down. Shape into three loaves; place in greased 8-in.x4-in.x2-in. loaf pans. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes. Bake at 375 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until tops are golden. Remove from pans to cool on wire racks.

Yields: 3 loavesĀ
