Ingredients
  • 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
Instructions
  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.
