Closer, closer…

It’s coming closer, and closer…you know…copious amounts of food, drink and merriment. Have you got your turkey-pants ready yet??

Here is another quick, and VERY easy side dish to prepare with your Turkey…you can use any kind of squash, but butternut is my favourite–rich with great texture.

Roasted Butternut Squash
1 butternut squash cut in half, with the seeds scooped out
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp butter

Place squash into a casserole dish cut side up.  Poke holes all over cut side of squash with a fork.   Place dabs of butter all over squash and then sprinkle brown sugar evenly over the top. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Cover and bake at 350 for about 45 min-1 hour or until very soft and easily poked with a fork.  You can baste with the butter/brown sugar occasionally throughout cooking.

tip: this way of cooking squash works amazingly well with any variety–you may need to up the cooking time to 2-2.5 hours depending on the size of the squash.  It freezes very well.
