Orange mountains majesty with lovely peaks of snow by texaskillet

You know that book.. Deceptively Delicious. I thought I would make something in the spirit of that book. Because I am unable to be super creative with a food that is already yummy I just made a slight change. Instead of Yams with marshmallows, I made butternut squash in the same fashion, but with a few small adjustments. J

  1. Get a nice healthy butternut squash
  2. Cut in half and then remove the seeds and strings. 😛
  3. Cut the halves in half again so that you end up with quarters
  4. Then cut across the length of the quarters
  5. Pile the pieces into a steaming pot and steam, check after 15 minutes
  6. Remove from the steam pot, let cool
  7. Once cooled, remove the meat from the rind
  8. Cube these pieces to the size you prefer, I usually go slightly larger than bite size
  9. In a bowl, toss with the following:
    1. Cinnamon applesauce
    2. Maple syrup (whatever kind you prefer)
    3. Butter (preferably something natural and salted)
    4. Sprinkle of salt, if desired, can be used instead of butter
  10. Spread the squash and goopy mixture into the casserole dish of your choosing
  11. Bake on 350 for 15 minutes
  12. Remove and add marshmallows (optional), then bake until marshmallows are golden brown and semi melted.

Let cool for 10 minutes, serve and eat!!!

Of course there are bunches of ways you can adjust this to your particular tastes. Just experiment, it would seem that butternut squash is delicious no matter what you do to it. J
