Recipe - Honey-Glazed Roasted Butternut Squash

So after cutting up the butternut squash, I obviously had to use it somehow. I looked at what I had and constructed something deliciously wonderful! I hope it's as good for you as it was for me. This is more of a side dish but I didn't have any qualms about just snacking on small bowls of it.

Step 1: Ingredients (serving size: 3-4 dinner side portions)
  • olive oil
  • salt
  • black pepper
  • nutmeg
  • cinnamon
  • honey
  • 1 butternut squash, diced

Step 2: Mixing the ingredients
Preheat the oven for 400 degrees Fahrenheit. On a baking sheet, place your diced butternut squash and then drizzle with olive oil. Mix this up before you add the other ingredients so that the pieces are coated to receive the seasonings. Sprinkle on a little bit of salt and black pepper to taste. Then cover the pieces with nutmeg and cinnamon. No real measurements here because it depends on how heavy you want them. Save the honey for later. Stick it into the oven.

Step 3: Adding the honey
After 20 minutes, take the squash out of the oven and drizzle on the honey. How liberal you want to be is up to you but keep in mind that you already have some natural sweetness as well as nutmeg and cinnamon. Put the sheet back in the oven.

Step 4: Completing
After 15 minutes, take out the squash and let it cool. Then serve!



  1. Love this recipe! Have you tried this with a summer squash?

  2. Butternut squash is actually the first squash I've ever used in cooking so no, I haven't tried this out with a summer squash. I'll keep it in mind though!
