Roasted Butternut Squash with Maple Sage Brown Butter
Danielle Walker - AgainstAllGrain.com
- 1 medium butternut squash (peeled and cubed)
- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/4 ground pepper
- 2 tablespoons salted butter
- 10 fresh sage leaves
- 1 tablespoon grade A maple syrup (honey for SCD)
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Peel, seed, and dice the butternut squash. You can follow my tutorial here.
- Toss the butternut squash in olive oil, salt, and pepper. Spread it evenly on a cookie sheet.
- Roast the squash, tossing occasionally, until tender and slightly browned, about 20 minutes.
- Heat the butter and sage leaves over medium-high heat, swirling it around the pan every couple of minutes. Once the butter foams up and starts browning, remove from heat. You want it to be a light amber color, but not burned.
- Add the maple syrup and cinnamon, then pour the butter sauce over the squash. Adjust the salt and pepper to your liking.

I am addicted to butternut squash right now, since my butternut squash pizza I made last week. This is something I will definitely try. Plus I loooove sage. Maybe you can come up with a butternut maple ice cream recipe. I think butternut is what pumpkin wants to be. Although I do like pumpkin too. Just thinking out loud. Thanks for the wonderful recipe.

Oh yum butternut maple ice cream with cinnamon and nutmeg. Will be on my list of to-dos!
You had me at Maple Sage Brown Butter! I don’t have any butternut on hand, but I think I’ll use your inspiration and try it with some aacorn squash I need to use!
Wonderful butternut squash dish and perfect for the holidays.
We just had this for Thanksgiving & it was A-MAZING! Plus, this was super easy! I cubed the squash the day before & so today’s prep was simple & fast! It goes so well with turkey & the sage, maple syrup, cinnamon combo was finger-licking good! Thank you!

Glad you enjoyed it!
Made this for St. Patrick’s Day for 1; had a chicken thigh smoked with peach wood chips with it. Fabulous! Will make it again and again. So easy 🙂
