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! See my notes about serving size if you love Butternut Squash like I do but don’t want to overdo it on carbs!
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.

How much Butternut Squash is a serving?
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!
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!
