How to Roast Winter Squash
These are the four easy steps you need to roast winter squash featured in Southern Living's Home Cooking Basics.
Roasted Winter Squash
Roasting is an indirect cooking method involving dry heat in an oven or over an open flame. The low and slow cooking of meats, vegetables, and fruit creates caramelization on the surface of the food to equal an added boost in flavor.
Cut the Squash
Using a large knife, cut the squash in half lengthwise.
Dispose of the Seeds
Using a spoon, completely remove the seeds onto the cutting board.
Brush with Honey-Butter Mixture
Place squash, cut sides up, on an aluminum foil-lined baking sheet. Brush cut sides of squash with honey-butter mixture. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Bake squash, uncovered, at 400° for 1 hour or until tender. Let stand 10 minutes.
