This delicious butternut squash recipe is the perfect side dish to your winter dinner. Bourbon and maple syrup are melted together with butter to make a sweet glaze over the roasted butternut squash. Who said you can't eat dessert for dinner!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cut squash in half lengthwise; remove and discard seeds. Place squash halves, cut sides up, in an ungreased 3-quart rectangular baking dish. In a small saucepan combine maple syrup, butter, and bourbon. Cook over medium-low heat until butter is melted. Pour mixture over squash; sprinkle with salt.
Bake, covered, for 30 minutes. Bake, uncovered, about 45 minutes more or until squash is tender, basting occasionally. To serve, cut squash into 2-inch slices. Spoon syrup mixture from dish over squash.
