Roasted Butternut Squash

1 Butternut squash, peeled and cut into med size squares
Canola oil
Salt & pepper to taste

Turn broiler on high.

Place cut squash pieces on cookie sheet, drizzle with canola oil, sprinkle salt & pepper.  Use your hands to cover each piece with plenty of oil, salt and pepper. 

Place in oven for 20 minutes or until soft when poked with a sharp knife and pieces are browned

Place in serving dish while it's still hot.  Add butter to your liking and stir gently and serve

Very, very simple recipe to do.  Hubby loves, loves, loves Butternut Squash.  This is the first time I've cooked it like this and he and grandma absolutely loved it.  I wasn't a fan of squash growing up but this squash has grown on me and I have to say that this dish was amazing.  Each piece covered in butter and just enough salt with a nutty flavor from the squash simply melted in my mouth.  This has now become a big favorite and will be the only way I'll cook this squash from now on.  I sent hubby to the store this morning and he came back with another Butternut Squash, even when it wasn't on my grocery list.  I think he's giving me a hint ;)


  1. I need to give Butternut Squash another try. Last year I tried to make soup and neither of us really like it much. Your recipe looks super good and it may change my husband's mind about Butternut Squash.

    Have a great week!

  2. Looks delicious!
    Thanks for sharing the recipe.
    Have a happy day.
