Step by Step Method

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F, then grease a baking sheet.

Step 2

Peel the squash and cut in half lengthwise.

Step 3

Using a spoon scrape out all the seeds.

Step 4

Slice the squash into about 1-1/2-inch cubes (try to get all the cubes to the same size) place them into a medium bowl.

Step 5

Add the melted butter, brown sugar, salt and pepper; using clean hands toss to coat.

Step 6

Spread out in a single layer on the baking sheet.

Step 7

Bake for 45 minutes to 55 minutes, until the squash is tender and the glaze begins to caramelize (turning the squash a few times during baking and season with more salt and pepper if needed).

I tested this out a couple of weeks ago, to make for Thanksgiving this year. I halved the amounts for just two of us. We both thoroughly enjoyed it, and It will be made for the rest of the family on turkey day!

I just love squash and feel that it's overlooked outside of the Fall or Winter season, so I decided to make it in June. A great, simple, and tasty recipe that was well enjoyed. The only issue I had was my own fault, where I didn't watch it and my chunks overcooked. Btw: I used buttercup squash because it is a favorite. Another Kittencal winner! Made it for PickMe Tag.
