  • 2 medium butternut squash (approx. 4-5 lb)
  • 6 -8 tbsp unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1⁄4 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • Salt and pepper
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Cut off the ends of each butternut squash and discard. Peel the squash and cut in half lengthwise. Using a spoon, remove the seeds.
  3. Cut the squash into 1¼" to 1½" cubes - making sure the size is uniform - and place them on a baking sheet.
  4. Add the melted butter, brown sugar, salt and pepper.
  5. With clean hands, toss all of the ingredients together and spread out in a single layer on the baking sheet.
  6. Roast until the squash is tender and the glaze begins to caramelize (approx. 45-55 minutes).
  7. Turn the squash while roasting a few times with a spatula to be sure it browns evenly.
  8. Add salt and pepper to taste.
