The first time I had butternut squash, I was well and truly hooked. Sweet and yet savory too, it was a real treat for my taste buds. I’ve since eaten it prepared in almost every way imaginable, but this recipe is probably my favorite.
For this recipe, you just need a couple of butternut squash, a little butter, some brown sugar, and salt and pepper; that’s it! Talk about simple. But don’t let that simplicity make you think this is anything but a great-tasting dish. It’s going to make your head spin.
Despite being so easy to make, this dish makes a great centerpiece for any meal – even Thanksgiving. Just make sure you cook enough so everyone gets a half, and no-one is left out. Use as a side dish or a main meal as preferred.
