Roasted Butternut Squash with Maple Syrup

Spread the love

Sometimes simple is the way to go- actually that is my way when it comes to entertaining for any event- even when it is a casual dinner party.

When it comes to holiday entertaining I try to make things simple for myself and look for recipes that I can make in advance or at least prep in advance.

For Thanksgiving there is a lot to think about and so I make sure not every dish is complicated and time consuming.

This is one of the side dishes that is delicious yet very simple to make. All I did was to cut up a butternut squash, drizzle it with olive oil and good maple syrup- thats it. 40 minutes in the oven and I had a fabulous side dish. It is delicious with the sweet maple syrup and a bit of savory salt.

You can buy already cut up butternut squash to make things easier for yourself. Prep it in advance- the morning of and even roast it. You can reheat it right before the big feast is served… easy and yummy- that is the way to go.

  • 1 medium butternut squash, peeled and cut into 2 inch squares
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • Salt
  • Pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil. Place the butternut squash on the sheet. Drizzle the oil and the maple syrup. Sprinkle the salt and pepper. Mix well with your fingers and roast for about 45 minutes.
