2 pounds winter squash (try acorn, butternut, delicata or others)
3 Tablespoons brown sugar
¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper
- Wash hands with soap and water.
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil. Lightly grease the foil.
- Rinse the squash, cut in half and scoop out seeds. Cut squash into 1-inch thick slices and lay on baking sheet.
- In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, salt and pepper. Sprinkle squash with half the seasoning mixture.
- Bake until sugar has melted, about 4 to 6 minutes. Remove baking sheet from oven and turn squash slices over. Sprinkle remaining seasoning mixture over squash and return to the oven. Bake until squash is tender, about 15 to 20 minutes. Serve warm.
- Refrigerate leftovers within 2 hours.
- Try adding other seasonings such as cinnamon, nutmeg, cayenne or cumin.
