Never a huge fan of butternut squash until I made this for a pre Thanksgiving trial run. GREAT dish, just the right balance of sweet and salt, and just very very good. Yes, Thanksgiving we will have this dish! And verry likely often after that

How could I not try this after seeing such a beautiful picture of this featured on the home page? I am so glad I did! In 31 years of marriage I had never made this squash...I can tell you now that it will be a regular veggie at my house as we all loved it. I actually peeled mine with a veggie peeler after cutting and removing the seeds, then melted the butter and other ingredients in my 8 cup glass measuring bowl in the microwave, then added the squash and tossed and turned onto the baking sheet. Easy to do, easy clean up, and so so yummy! Thank you so much for posting...you've made us Butternut Squash lovers!!

This recipe is AWESOME!!! I used olive oil instead of butter to cut the fat some. I made this Sunday and my squash hating family gobbled it up. They thought they were eating sweet potatoes lololol. I'm glad you posted so I won't have to.

made this, halving the recipe (as it was just for me) and the butter/brown sugar mixture began to burn--maybe because I halved the recipe and there was just too much room on the baking sheet. It also only took about 30 minutes to cook. I added cinnamon. It's delicious!

Easy to put together and really, really good, too!! What more could you ask? This was not nearly as sweet as I thought it might be, which was great, since I prefer savory entrees and sides. Love the crunchy outside/creamy inside texture. This is a keeper!

Excellent recipe. The second time I made it I sprinkled it with cinnamon. I am guessing 1-2 tsp? Delicious.

VERY different from what I expected, I thought all these ingredients put together was a little odd, but it came together very nicely, I believe next time I will cut down on the pepper. but I LOVED this!
