brown butter and sage acorn squash.
Ever roasted an acorn squash?
You might be thinking “squash? yuck.”
Not when you top it with butter, brown sugar and fresh sage, my friend. Just trust me.
Doesn’t look so glamorous now but just you wait…
Here’s the fresh sage from my garden – I grew it myself!!
You might be tempted to lick the bottom of the dish. I know I was – er, did.
Brown Butter and Sage Acorn Squash
What You’ll Need:
1 whole acorn squash, cut into 8 wedges
1 tablespoon olive oil
4 tablespoons butter, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons minced fresh sage
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Split squash in half and scoop out the seeds with a spoon. Cut each half into 4 wedges and place all 8 wedges in an ovenproof baking dish. Brush with olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt to taste. Bake for 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, combine butter and brown sugar to make a paste. Once squash has baked, remove from oven, brush with the butter paste and sprinkle with fresh sage. Place back in the oven another 30 minutes, spooning the melted butter on top of the squash wedges several times while cooking. After 30 minutes squash will become brown and caramelized – yum.
TOTAL: $1.95 or $.49 per serving.
