Twice-Baked Winter Squash

With Thanksgiving just a few short days away, here is a tantalizing recipe to accompany your main dish!


  • 1 butternut squash, halved lengthwise and seeds removed
  • 2 tsp butter
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 12-15 pecan halves


  • Place squash cut side down on a baking sheet and bake at 350 for an hour.
  • Turn the squash cut side up and use a fork to gently loosen and mash the flesh, being careful to let it retain it’s shape.
  • Season the flesh with salt and pepper, then dot with butter, arrange the pecans and sprinkle with brown sugar.
  • Bake at 350 for 20 mins and serve hot.
I used a butternut squash but you could use acorn, pattypan, hubbard, pumpkin or any other winter squash. This makes a perfect Thanksgiving side!
