  • 1 large butternut squash, quartered lengthwise
  • 1/4 cup melted butter

Scoop seeds out of butternut squash. Arrange butternut squash pieces, cut-side down, in a large baking dish. Pour hot water in the baking dish to a depth of about 1/4-inch. Bake butternut squash at 350° for 50 to 60 minutes, or until tender. Cool squash; peel.

Absolutely Amazing and SIMPLE, Member FollowChristine

Such a simple easy dish. I had a few variations: I bought pre-cubed butternut squash which was very convenient. Used light maple syrup bc I had no honey in stock. Also used 3 TBSP melted margarine instead of 4. Sprinkled with nutmeg in addition to cinnamon for extra flavor. Suggest you toss the ingredients around a bit before baking to allow pecans to get coated in that yummy mixture as they will start to candy a bit which tastes even better. I had to cover in foil to allow my squash to soften and baked a little longer, then removed foil for last half which allowed the pecans to candy.
