what you'll need

  • 4 lbs butternut squash peeled, seeded and cut into 1½" pieces (approx. 2 medium)
  • 4 Tbsp unsalted butter melted
  • 1/2 cup yellow onion diced
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar firmly packed
  • 1 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • red pepper flakes crushed, to taste, optional

let's do it

  • 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.

One Last Thing

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