I make this recipe every year and I love it!! I'm not a big fan of squash - especially when it's pureed - but I really like this because of the carmelized yumminess!<br><br><b><span style="text-decoration:underline;">Carmelized Butternut Squash</span></b><br><br><br>
2 medium butternut squash<br>
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted<br>
1/4 c light brown sugar<br>
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt<br>
1/2 teaspoon black pepper<br><br>
preheat oven to 400deg<br><br>
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 45-55min until the squash is tender and the glaze begins to caramlelize. While roasting, turn the squash a few times with a spatula to be sure it browns evenly. Taste for seasonings and serve hot.<br><br>
