I am giving you a choice of three toppings they are all good.There are two different toppings in the picture Bacon Maple syrup and Browned Butter Sage. I just finished enjoying a butternut squash with GINGER marmalade &Chili flakes. 3 Tbsp Ginger marmalade, 1/2 tsp chili flakes, mix together and spoon into squash cavity - I really liked this one

I prepared this using butternut squash. I did the browned butter, honey and sage variation with great results. It was so good with our dinner. This will be enjoyed by us many times. Thanks!
