Ingredients:

6-8 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted & cooled
1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat the oven to 400F.

Cut off the ends of each butternut squash & discard.

Peel the squash and cut in half lengthwise.

Using a spoon, remove the seeds.

Cut the squash into 1 1/4" to 1 1/2" cubes (large and uniform is best), and place them on a baking sheet.

Add the melted butter, brown sugar, salt and pepper.

Toss all of the ingredients together and spread out in a single layer on the baking sheet.

Roast for 45 minutes to 55 minutes, until the squash is tender and the glaze begins to caramelize.

Turn the squash while roasting a few times with a spatula to be sure it browns evenly.

Adjust seasonings if needed.
Serve hot.

Personal Notes:
It is best when the squash is cut in medium to large chunks so that the outside gets a maple-flavored crust, and the inside stays soft and delicious.
