ROASTED BUTTERNUT SQUASH WITH MAPLE AND BROWN SUGAR
• 2 (1 lb. each) butternut squash
• 4 tsp. butter, divided
• 4 tsp. real maple syrup
• 4 tsp. light brown sugar
• Salt, to taste
Preheat the oven to 450. Cut each squash in half, and discard the seeds. Place in a shallow baking dish, cut side up. Place 1 teaspoon butter and 1 tablespoon maple syrup in the cavity of each squash half.
Roast 15 to 20 minutes, or until the flesh is fork-tender. Remove from the oven, and fluff the flesh with a fork.
Sprinkle 1 teaspoon brown sugar over each squash half, and season to taste with salt. Serve immediately.
