A little sweet caramelized perfection, a little salty with a heavenly hint of orange, and all of this with low calories, low sugar, and very good for you? Oh yeah! Butternut squash will become your new go-to side dish with this easy, pop in the oven side dish.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Line a shallow baking dish or rimmed cookie sheet with aluminum foil.
  3. Using a vegetable peeler, peel the squash, remove the seeds, and cut into 1-2" chunks.
  4. Toss the squash with the olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  5. Place in the oven and bake for 30 minutes, then shake the pan so all of the pieces will cook evenly, and bake for another 20 minutes.
  6. Stir in the Grand Marnier, and bake for another 15-25 minutes until the squash is browning on the bottom and looking caramelized and bubbling.
  7. Remove from the oven and serve.
