Yum! This Monday's recipe is so sweet and delish. It is perfect any time, but something about it makes me think of Autumn. This recipe has few ingredients, though it takes some time to brown up the butter. My advice to you is to try it...because honey there ain't nothing better than brown butter! Trust me.
Brown Buttered Squash
One big butternut squash
1 stick of butter (if you have salted butter don't add the pinch of salt)
pinch of salt
1/3 cup of brown sugar
`In a pan melt the stick of butter. The key here is LOW & SLOW. You want to melt the butter and once you see white bits float to the top you want to stir it and keep heating the butter until the bits turn a golden brown. This technique is used a lot and it brings out a sweet nutty flavor to the butter. It is super yummy!
`Cut the squash into bite size pieces and place on a cookie sheet. Pre-Heat oven to 400 degrees
`Pour the browned butter over squash and toss
`Sprinkle the brown sugar over squash and toss till everything is evenly coated
`Roast for about 20 minutes or until the squash is fork tender and caramelized.
As a side dish serve hot.
For baby food...let it cool then blend to your babies stage. PS your babe is going to LOVE this sweet and savory combo!
