Delicata Squash with Brown Sugar and Butter and the Butterball Coupon Winners

Delicata is my new favorite squash – I can’t believe it took me so long to try it! This squash is light, flavorful, and easy to cook. I am looking forward to trying all sorts of recipes with it. I lightly brushed some butter in each half then sprinkled them with a bit of brown sugar before baking them in the oven. They turned out so delicious, moist, and flavorful. My son absolutely loved his and so did my husband and I. I will definitely make this recipe again.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Add a 1/4 inch of water to a large baking pan.

Cut the squash in half lengthwise then clean out the seeds with a spoon. Rub the butter equally into each squash half. Season with a touch of sea salt and freshly cracked pepper then sprinkle each half equally with the brown sugar. Place into the prepared baking dish then cover with tin foil.

 

Place the pan into the oven and bake for 30 minutes, or until tender. Remove the tin foil then turn the oven to broil; cook,watching carefully, for a few minutes or until the sugar starts to caramelize. Remove from the oven and serve immediately. Enjoy.
