Tiffany shares a bunch of options on how to use this roasted butternut squash, but we opted to roast it and cut it into cubes. We dipped it into the sweet, sugary sauce for a delicious side dish. The flavor is a mix of yellow squash and sweet potato. Yum!

Test Kitchen Tips
Depending on the size of your butternut squash, roasting time will vary. Ours took 35 minutes.
  • Butternut squash cut in half, de-seeded, and rubbed with oil.
    Slice in half and remove seeds. Take your squash and rub it down with oil.
  • Butternut squash in baking dish sprinkled with brown sugar.
    Place in a pan. Then sprinkle brown sugar over it. I pool a little extra in the concave space. Then pour about a cup of water into the bottom of the pan.

    Cook at 450F until fork tender.
