Baked Butternut SquashPosted: October 3, 2009
This is the ultimate autumn side dish. Unfortunately, not many in my family like this. I make it at least once a year anyways because I like it. This is the recipe written out. In actuality, I don’t measure any of this, I just eyeball the ingredients.
Baked Butternut Squash
1 pound butternut squash, medium dice
salt and pepper, to taste
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground cardamom
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 ounces whole butter, melted
Place the squash in a buttered pan. Season with salt, pepper, cinnamon, cardamom and brown sugar.
Drizzle the lemon juice and butter over the top of the squash.
Bake, uncovered, in a 350 degree oven until tender, approximately 50 minutes.
