picwN8tLw

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

Directions:

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!
