Can't imagine eating butternut squash without peeling it! Kinda like eating an unpeeled hardboiled egg! I think broke student is trying to see if anyone will bite on her little joke.
Fantastic. It is a frequent request at our holiday pot lucks. Ingredients should be simple and good quality i.e. freshly ground black pepper and nice squash. Don't crowd your pan for squash to caramelize. I've used both fresh and frozen squash. Fresh is best. To save us time, our grocer will cube a fresh butternut squash.
I have never peeled or chopped a butternut squash. Usually just cut half lengthwise and bake with butter and salt and pepper. <br/>I only had one squash but still used 6 tablespoons margarine, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon pepper and the quarter cup dark brown sugar. <br/>I also only baked it for 25 minutes at 400 because the butter and sugar were absorbed and the squash was tender.<br/>It had too much pepper, my fault...otherwise very tasty. A bit more labor intensive than I'm used to. I might try again and adjust the seasoning. <br/>Thanks for the recipe.
This recipe calls for way too much butter. At the end of cooking, my butternut squash was swimming in butter. I will make this dish again, but use WAY less butter.
with a brand new oven I followed this recipe to a T and my entire apartment was filled with smoke in about 15 minutes... half of the squash pieces were charred and half were undercooked and I might have to toss the baking sheet due to it being covered in burned sugar. This recipe states to bake for 55 minutes? if so I would recommend using a much lower heat than 400 degrees. No stars
Made this for Christmas exactly as recipe stated. Was absolutely wonderful. Everyone loved it, including the kids. Thanks Pianolady.
i have to say it was really good,, but i could not peel the skin no matter what i tried.
like this really needs another review. I've made this so many times I can't count. just love it
Excellent! I added some walnuts at half the cooking time. Yum, Yum, Yum. <br/>Definitely use unsalted butter or don't use any extra salt. <br/>I will for sure be making this sweet, soft and lovely side dish again. Thanks for sharing.
This turned out great! I used a precut 20oz package from the store. I used 1 1/2 Tbsp of butter, 2 Tbsp of brown sugar, + salt and pepper. I cooked it in a cast iron skillet to get great carmelization. I liked the super crisp small pieces mixed with the bigger ones. Keeper recipe! Thanks.
