Cinnamon Roasted Butternut Squash

Every now and then I get an urge to pick up a new vegetable at the grocery store that I' never tried. My latest veggie impulse buy was a butternut squash which I got home and immediately had NO idea what to do with. After a little recipe browsing I finally decided on cinnamon roasted butternut squash because it was simple and I already had all of the ingredients on hand. Win win! It turned out just delicious! I love when I find a new recipe to add to my favorites list! Does anyone else occasionally like to try something out of the ordinary? 

Cinnamon Roasted Butternut Squash

  • 1 large butternut squash, peeled
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp salt

Peel squash and remove the seeds. Cut your squash into small pieces. In a large bowl combine squash, olive oil, brown sugar, cinnamon, salt and pepper. Stir until all of your squash is coated with mixture. Spread out in an ungreased baking pan. I actually used 2 glass pans and a cookie tray because I didn't have a pan large enough to spread the squash out without overlapping. Bake at 425 degrees for 25 minutes. Enjoy! 


  1. Sounds delicious! I always wonder what to do with them, and this recipe sounds perfect!

  2. I will have to try this! I always have this goal with meat...I will pick up a random piece of meat and find a recipe to go with it. Definitely gets me out of my comfort zone!

  3. This looks so yummy, I love trying out new recipes so this may just be a winner!
