Recipe Ingredients for Roasted Butternut Squash with Brown Butter and Sage

1474.18 grams butternut squash, about 3 1/4 lbs
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp unsalted butter
24 tbsp fresh sage, 24 leaves
1 salt and pepper to taste

Recipe Directions for Roasted Butternut Squash with Brown Butter and Sage

  1. Preheat the oven to 425F. Using a sturdy vegetable peeler, peel the squash. Using a large, sharp knife, cut the squash crosswise where the bulbous part meets the narrower part, and trim off the blossom and stem ends. Cut the bulbous part in half vertically and scrape out and discard the seeds and fibers. Cut all of the squash into 1-inch chunks. Spread the pieces on a rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle with the oil and toss with your hands to coat. Season with salt and pepper.

  2. Roast for 15 minutes. Stir the squash and continue roasting until tender and browned, 10-15 minutes more. Remove from the oven.

  3. In a small frying pan, melt the butter over medium heat until the foam subsides. Add the sage and cook just until the butter turns a light hazelnut brown and the sage is crisp (about 30 seconds). Immediately pour the brown butter and sage over the squash on the baking sheet and toss to coat. Transfer to a warmed serving bowl and serve.
