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.
