Squash is supposed to be really good for you – and I guess it is, until you add all the good stuff to it like brown sugar and butter; but it’s so good!!
If you want a great recipe for a Thanksgiving Day side dish here it is.
- 1 butternut squash (2 to 2½ pounds)
- ¼ cup brown sugar (packed)
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter (melted)
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon pepper
- 1 teaspoon cider vinegar (optional)
- Preheat oven to 425F.
- Peel and remove seeds from squash and cut into 1 inch pieces.
- Place the squash pieces in a large bowl. Add the sugar, salt, pepper, and brown sugar. Pour in the melted butter and toss to coat.
- Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil, lightly spray with cooking spray, and arrange the squash pieces in a single layer on the foil.
- Bake for 45 minutes. Mixing the pieces about every 15 minutes until squash is glazed and tender. (While mixing them try to flip as many as you can so they brown on both sides)
- If using the vinegar, drizzle the vinegar over the pieces, and serve hot. Enjoy
