Maple Roasted Butternut Squash

I was doing a cooking presentation with my sisters a few months ago on the Hallmark Channel, and we prepared our Butternut Squash Gratin.  I had honestly never tasted butternut squash before that and had no idea what I was missing until then!

I love using pure maple syrup to sweeten things.  It has a way of caramelizing everything to perfection!

This roasted butternut squash gets a little crispy on the outside is perfectly soft on the inside. To make this recipe even easier, I used precut butternut squash from the produce section of my grocery store!
