Squash It!

Hey everyone!  We want to help you start thinking about your Thanksgiving menu.  I know it is only the 13th, but really Thanksgiving is just around the corner.  Some people are all about the turkey, but I personally obess about what kind of sidedishes I can make every year.  I am pretty sure that Butternut Squash is a Thanksgiving staple, but check out this recipe for Caramelized Butternut Squash.  It is simple perfection!


Carmelized Buttnut Squash


  • 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 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.


Cut off and discard the ends of each butternut squash. Peel the squash, cut them in half lengthwise, and remove the 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 in 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. Taste for seasonings and serve hot.
