Reviewed Roasted Squash with Brown Butter and Cinnamon

Oct 11, 2013 on FoodNetwork.com

I can't understand why all recipes for butternut or banana squash need sugar and molasses. The squash is sweet enough as it is. I like to put a pat of butter and Italian spice in the cavity after removing the seeds, then bake it at 375 until soft. I'd appreciate some other interesting recipes but forget the sugar!

This was a great recipe for a large family. There are only 2 of us, and I couldn't do the math to make just two. It woud be so helpful if these recipes could give a break-down for 2 or 4 servings.

Next time I'm goin...

Wow! tried the first time as in the recipe, then I tweeked it. I put a 1/2 cup of chunky peanut butter instead of the morsels, worked great. Also grabbed the wrong extract and used rum. That turned out to be a wow. Note: Sweetened condensed milk is a must! No matter what you do to it, it turns out great!""

This is a lot like the way I've always done deviled eggs. But I add a little pizzaz to it by using a 1/2 tsp. of horseradish and a small amount of mild diced chilis and a small amount of diced pimientos for color and just a bit of extra umph. Try it, you'll like it.""
