Sweet and Spicy Butternut Squash

A super EASY recipe for Sweet and Spicy Butternut Squash. If you don’t like things spicy then simply leave out the Cayenne Pepper. I served it with grilled flat iron steak and dipped the steak into the butter bowl… DELICIOUS!

1 medium butternut squash, cut in half lengthwise and seeded

2 teaspoons butter

2 teaspoons brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Freshly ground pepper

Fleur de sel (or any crunchy sea salt)


Preheat oven to 400 degrees

In a small bowl, mix the brown sugar and cayenne pepper.

Set the two butternut squash halves a large bakin, making sure the flesh side is facing up.

Place 1 teaspoon butter in the middle of each squash. 

Sprinkle brown sugar/cayenne mix over each squash, then rub into the flesh.

Season with black pepper. 

Roast 25 minutes, or just until the flesh is fork-tender.

Top with fleur de sel while still hot.
