Monday’s Bread Bowl: Spicy Sweet Roasted Squash

A homey sweet and salty combo

We’re thinking about serving this dish on Thanksgiving. We seasoned Delicata, aka sweet potato, squash with brown sugar and coarse sea salt. The result is a salty sweet taste that enhances the natural flavors and smooth texture of baked squash. Here’s the recipe.

What you will need:

1 baking sheet
Aluminum foil
Non-stick Cooking spray
3 to 4 Delicata squashes, *seeded and sliced into ¼ inch pieces or half-rings
1/3 cup brown sugar
2-3 tbsp of sea salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 teaspoons paprika

Cooking and Directions:

Preheat oven at 350 degrees. Prepare baking sheet by lining with foil to cover bottom and secure at sides. Spray with cooking spray. Arrange squash pieces on greased foil. Sprinkle liberally with salt, paprika, cinnamon, and brown sugar. Place in oven and bake for 45-60 minutes. Remove baking sheet from oven and serve immediately or let cool and freeze for reheating and serving at a later date.
