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

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.

Delicata Squash with Brown Sugar and Butter

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.

  1. Hi Pam, I’ve never tried this squash but it does sound very tempting and so easy to make! Happy Veterans Day 🙂

  2. That looks so good Pam! I tend to shy away from squash because they can be so hard to cut into. But I love them!

  3. I do not know delicata at all but I have a squash ready to be eaten here and I will try that recipe with it, sounds good to to me. Thanks. Have a good day. Diane

  4. I have never had delicata squash before.. but this makes me want to run out and buy it today!!!
    Congrats to the two winners!!!

  5. I would definitely be tempted to just eat all of those halves for dinner.

  6. I am happy it is fall and it is squash season. Like you I love baking the squash with brown sugar or maple syrup.

  7. Delicata is one of my favorites too. I usually cook it in the microwave: smear with Smart Balance and sprinkle with seasoned salt or Mrs. Dash no salt seasoning. I use a square pyrex pan with a little water in the bottom and a plate balanced over the top – saves on plastic wrap which I do not like to put in the microwave.

  8. oh, i definitely love the delicata–it’s probably my favorite too. great preparation!
