One of my favorite things of fall is all the winter squash! Squash is easily one of my favorite veggies. But…confession time – I usually cheat and buy the cubed butternut squash from the grocery store!!! Its just so dang hard to cut those things in half! But, I had been staring at this little guy on my counter for over a week so I figured it was time to brave it! I solicited some ideas from my facebook friends on some yummy recipes and although there were quite a few impressive sounding ideas…I couldn’t pass up the grilled option given we were sitting on a very unseasonably warm late October day!

WHAT YOU NEED:

  • Butternut Squash
  • 1/4 – 1/3 cup Balsamic Vinegar
  • 2-3 TBS Honey

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:

Steps for making grilled butternut squash

  1. Wash the butternut squash thoroughly
  2. Add the balsamic vinegar to a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Cook for about 5 minutes and add honey
  3. Slice the squash in half so you have two even bottoms to work with and peel off the outside
  4. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat
  5. Cut each half into slices and then steam in a microwave safe bowl with about 1-2″ of water for 4 minutes
  6. Grill approximately 5-6 minutes each side, depending on the thickness of your slices, brushing with honey & balsamic glaze
  7. Enjoy!

 

I also think this would be good with some brown sugar or cinnamon and a little olive oil! Get creative – try something new!

Tonight I served it with grilled chicken and steamed broccoli! YUM!!!!
