Caramelized Butternut Squash Recipe

To enhance the sweetness and caramelizing process, I use only a touch of brown sugar in my caramelized butternut squash recipe to keep it nice and savory!

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, mix together all ingredients except the red pepper flakes, making certain to coat the squash evenly. Divide the mixture in half and pour onto two baking sheets. Sprinkle with red pepper flakes for an added kick if desired then roast 40–45 minutes. To make certain it browns evenly on all sides, stir a few times as it roasts.


Make certain to use two baking sheets. If you place the entire recipe on one sheet, the squash will steam and not caramelized.
