Ingredients
  • Butternut Squash
  • Salted Butter or a variety of toppings
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Cut Butternut Squash in half length wise.
  2. Core out the seeds well.
  3. Place both sides face down onto a cookie sheet.
  4. Fill the cookie sheet with water (1/2-1 inch) or until mostly full.
  5. Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until a fork inserted into the squash (rind side). Goes in very easily and the squash feels soft.
  6. Allow to cool. Top with any of the following: salted butter (my favorite variety is found here), pepper, salt, ranch seasoning, ranch dressing, garlic salt, cayenne pepper, rosemary, curry powder, or paprika. Or try a sweeter dish and top the Butternut Squash with any of the following: butter and maple syrup, marshmallows, cinnamon, nutmeg, and/or brown sugar.
  7. Refrigerate left overs for up to a week.
