My husband found this, and I love it! No more peeling the course skin of butternut squash for Thanksgiving! The flavor and texture of squash done this way has changed my opinion of this vegetable. I also love the simplicity of serving and presenting this dish.

  3. Place the cut side up on a cookie sheet
  4. Divide butter and brown sugar between the seed cavities and sprinkle with cinnamon and/or nutmeg
  5. Bake for one hour, occasionally spooning the butter/sugar mixture over the rest of the squash. Check in the thickest part of the squash for tenderness.
