Caramelized Butternut Squash

Butternut squash is one of my favorite foods. It’s so versatile and can be used is sweet or savory dishes. I have quite a few butternut squash recipes that I’ve already made, so I decided to make a Squash tag. Be sure to check it out.

Since I love butternut squash so much, I thought it would be appropriate to feature a week of butternut squash recipe. I’m going to kick off the week with a recipe that so simple and so delicious, it’s almost silly to call it a recipe.

Most recipes for roasted squash result in a savory dish, but with the simple addition of some brown sugar to the mix, you can transform roasted squash into a sweet little side dish.

In a moment of full disclosure, I have to admit that when I made this one afternoon while working from home, I and then proceeded to eat the entire batch of roasted squash as my lunch. Then I made it the next night for dinner. Hubby agreed that it was delicious.

    Cabbage is everywhere for St. Patrick’s Day! I love boiled cabbage, though for years I avoided it. This looks like a way to really infuse some crazy flavor into it!

    I love cabbage recipes. And anything with bacon is always a plus! Will be trying this soon.

      So glad you liked it!

      I haven’t been to BonBonerie yet. I will definitely have to check them out. I’ve also never made opera cream cake either…
