My Top Ten Butternut Squash Recipes
I love Butternut Squash in the fall even if it’s a splurge on carbs, and here are My Top Ten Butternut Squash Recipes! And this post also features ten more amazing ideas for butternut squash from other blogs.
My name is Kalyn and I’m a butternut squash lover! I know it’s not a super-low-carb vegetable but it is high in fiber, and for me it’s a treat I look forward to every fall. And I’ve got some tried-and-true recipes for cooking butternut squash, so today I’m sharing My Top Ten Butternut Squash Recipes.
I inherited the butternut squash appreciation gene from my Grandma Denny; Grandma would hack apart giant butternut squash from her garden, scrape out the seeds, and wrap pieces in foil and bake them in the oven. We’d eat the squash mashed up with lots of butter, salt, and pepper. Now I’m more likely to cut the squash in cubes and roast it with olive oil, but pretty much any way you cook it, I love the savory flavor of butternut squash.
And one thing I discovered when I was checking nutritional information for these recipes is that serving size makes a big difference for higher-carb veggies like this. For my recipes for Roasted Butternut Squash I try to keep the serving size to about one cup. Check the nutritional info and see what you think! And if Butternut Squash is too much of a carb splurge for you to want even a small serving, check out some of the low-carb side dishes on the blog!
Is Butternut Squash hard to cut up?
If you’re not that experienced at cooking Butternut Squash you might want to ready my post about How to Peel and Cut Up a Butternut Squash before you tackle one for the first time. Some stores sell squash cubes already prepped, but I think freshly cut squash has more flavor. You can definitely use the pre-cut ones if you prefer though, and they’re great for soup!
This Roasted Butternut Squash with Lemon, Thyme, and Parmesan is definitely a wow for me! Use even more cheese if you’d like!
This Roasted Butternut Squash with Tahini-Yogurt Sauce has those middle eastern flavors that I always enjoy!
This Slow Cooker Butternut Squash is great to make for a crowd, and I love how it also keeps it warm during the meal. Use the Casserole Crock Slow Cooker (affiliate link) if you have one, but this can also be made in any large oval slow cooker.

Roasted Butternut Squash with Moroccan Spices is loaded with flavor, and this post also has 10 More Ideas for Roasted Vegetables.
