mise en place
maple-roasted butternut squash
1 medium butternut squash (about 2lbs)
1/4 cup maple syrup
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
2 tablespoons butter
olive oil to grease baking sheet
preheat oven to 400 degrees.
lightly brush a baking sheet with olive oil.
peel and seed the squash (use a vegetable peeler to remove the skin) and cut it up into 3/4 - 1" cubes.
place the cubed squash on the baking sheet and drizzle on the maple syrup. sprinkle on the brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. toss it all together and lay out the cubes so they're in one layer and dot with butter.
bake for about 30 mins. or until the squash becomes tender and golden brown, tossing once during baking.
