Butternut Squash with Brown Butter (Martha Stewart)

My parents made yellow squash all the time when I was a child and I hated it.  The only type of squash we ever had was yellow squash and to be honest with you I have never tried any other type of squash in my entire life until last week.  I doubt I will ever eat yellow squash again, but there are plenty of other choices in the squash world.

Last week when my husband and I were at Trader Joe’s I found a butternut squash that intrigued me. Like I said before I have never had any other squash and for the price of $1.95 for a big squash I thought I would give it a try. My thought was …. What do I have to lose?

As apprehensive as I was about making the butternut squash it actually surprised me! I really liked it. Making it with this Martha Steward recipe it turned out tasting like a mild sweet potatoes. I was shocked at how much I liked it. 

My husband was thrilled because he loves sweet potatoes and thought this tasted even better than sweet potatoes. I don’t know if I would go that far, but I must say this is a keeper recipe and so is butternut squash! You just never know what you might like you might like until you try it.

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 butternut squash (about 1 3/4 pounds), peeled, seeded, and cut into 3/4-inch cubes
  • 1/2 cup low-sodium canned chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon dark-brown sugar

  1. Heat butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat until golden brown. 
  2. Add squash; sauté, stirring occasionally, until golden brown and tender when pierced with a fork, about 16 minutes.
  3. Add chicken broth, the water, and brown sugar; cook until liquid has evaporated and squash is nicely caramelized, about 6 minutes. 
  4. Remove from heat, and season with salt and pepper. 
  5. Serve.
