Maple Roasted Butternut Squash

Ingredients:

  • 1 large butternut squash, peeled/seeded and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp packed brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 425F and line two baking sheets with foil or parchment paper (I suggest spraying the foil with non-stick spray to avoid sticking).
  • In a large bowl, toss the squash with remaining ingredients until thoroughly coated. Evenly spread out cubed squash on baking sheets in a single layer.
  • Roast about 30-40 minutes, rotating pan midway during baking. When edges have browned and cubes are fork-tender, immediately remove from oven to avoid burning.
  • Munch a bunch!

Stay posh, butternut squash!
