Honey Thyme Roasted Butternut Squash is a delicious and healthy side dish recipe. This quick and easy appetizer only uses 6 ingredients!
Honey Thyme Roasted Butternut Squash
I remember when this baking sheet of fabulousness came out of the oven a few days ago, I was giddy as I was drizzling the honey over tops. Think sweet and somewhat savory. Don’t be afraid if you’ve never enjoyed butternut squash, it’s got a mild flavor even the kids won’t mind. Especially with the honey factor. Many times you can find butternut squash already cubed and bagged in your produce section of your grocery store. I picked up a nice bag at my Whole Foods and couldn’t wait to develop this simple “candy” tasting vegetable.Excited for you to taste this one, I’ll make a believer out of you, I promise 🙂

How to Make the Best Roasted Butternut Squash

Season with some kosher salt.

Ahaa, its fastidious conversation concerning this article here at this blog,
I have read all that, so now me also commenting here.
We love butternut squash but I haven’t done a savory squash dish yet. I usually just roast it. Why did you sautee it before roasting it? Sounds like a lot of extra work to me! 🙂 I am curious, not being a hater. 🙂 I am going to try the thyme and honey with some yams tonight since it is what we have. We love yams too and often use yams and butternut squash interchangeably.
I make butternut squash so often it’s almost ridiculous. It’s one vegetable that my kids don’t give me grief about! I typically roast it with maple syrup, cinnamon, and sometimes I roast apples with it, and top it with toasted pecans. I’ve never made it with thyme before, however, so I’ll just have to try it. I’ve never got enough recipes for one of my favorite squashes, and this looks great!
This was DELICIOUS!!! Loved it and so simple!
I love butternut! This looks great! I think this maybe be a featured side at our dinner table a few nights a week :). Stunning photos!

Jenny! I can honestly tell you that this is one of the most enticing recipes I have ever come across. Butternut squash is one of my favourites, but I’ve never seen it prepared this way. The photos are amazing — that last photo makes me want to run to the kitchen this very second and make this. It just seems to comforting and flavourful! xo
