Easy Brown Sugar Glazed Squash on a blue and white plate
4 to 6
  • 2 medium sized butternut squash (about 6 cups sliced squash)
  • 1/2 cup (100 g) Redpath® Golden Yellow Sugar
  • 2 tsp (10 g) cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp (1 g) nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp (1 g) salt
  • 3 tbsp (43 g) unsalted butter, melted

Step 1

Heat oven to 400°F (204°C). Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

Step 2

Peel the skins off of the squash. Cut squash into halves and scoop out the seeds.


Step 3

Slice the halved squash into thick pieces. Set aside.


Step 4

In a large bowl, mix the sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt together until well combined.

Step 5

Add the squash to the sugar mixture and gently stir until each piece is coated in sugar mixture.

Step 6

Place squash pieces on the parchment lined baking tray. Don't crowd them too much on the baking sheet to ensure they cook evenly.

Step 7

Drizzle the melted butter over the squash. Bake squash for 20-30 minutes or until tender, checking them halfway through to flip the pieces. Serve immediately.
