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).

Nothing goes better for a side with turkey than butternut squash and it is easily my favorite way to make it thus far! Even my son liked it and he's not a squash eater!
