Butternut squash

I am not sure why I am posting this since I did very little to it. It is a veggie that I have grown to love.


butternut squash
little salt and pepper
3 or so Tbsp. brown sugar


Peel the squash with a vegetable peeler and dice into bite-sized pieces. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and toss to distribute seasoning. Spread out diced pieces onto a cookie sheet. (I use a silpat on my cookie sheet so the squash doesn't stick during baking). Bake in a 375 degree oven for 30 minutes (or until squash becomes tender - time differs depending on how big you made the pieces). Sprinkle with brown sugar and toss, allowing it to melt into the squash.

Hello Butternut Squash!!! YUM! YUM! YUM!
This reminds me of a recipe my mom found last year for butternut squash that is delicious. I will find it and post it. What a great fall recipe. Thanks for sharing.

WE LOVE Butternut Squash. We tried to grow it this year but didn't get any. Sad. I have never tried it with brown sugar on it, just salt, pepper and butter. We had some last night, but next time I will dice it like you did and use brown sugar. Thanks!

This looks so good. I want to get a squash right now. You've got to love healthy comfort food and that is just what this is. Thanks for posting. I feel inspired.

We had this tonight with Leslie's yummy eggplant. I omitted the pepper and didn't add the brown sugar until the last five minutes of baking. It was very tasty.
