Butternut Squash – A Healthy Super Bowl Snack

Super Bowl parties are notorious for unhealthy food choices. Here is my Butternut Squash recipe that can be served as an excellent side dish or appetizer for any party. Warm, healthy and fresh!

Cubed butternut squash (I use one package of pre-cubed butternut squash)
Brown Sugar
Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper
Additional ingredients you can add: onions or apples

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Place cubed butternut squash in a large mixing bowl. Add a drizzle of olive oil to cover squash, then sprinkle with cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, pepper, and a small amount of brown sugar. Toss the cubes to coat with mixture. Add in onions or apples if you want at this point.  Spread squash mixture evenly over baking or cookie sheet and bake for 40-45 minutes or until golden brown and tender.

Once cooked, return squash to a large mixing bowl and toss with a very small amount of butter and brown sugar. Arrange the cubes on a platter with toasted baguettes. Use toothpicks to make the cubes easy to pick up. Enjoy!
