Recipe: Caramelized Butternut Squash


What you need:

2 medium butternut squash (4 to 5 pounds total)

6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed

1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt

1/2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper


Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Cut off and discard the ends of each butternut squash

Peel the squash, cut them in half lengthwise, and remove seeds

Cut the squash into 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 inch cubes and place them on a baking sheet

Add the melted butter, brown sugar, salt, and pepper

With clean hands, toss all the ingredients together and spread into a single layer on the baking sheet

Roast for 45 to 55 minutes, until the squash is tender and the glaze begins to caramelize

While roasting, turn the squash a few times with a spatula, to be sure it browns evenly

Season to taste, and serve hot!
