I just found some huge butternut squash and at $1 each I bought three. I've really only had it as soup and would like to know if anyone else prepares this, can you share your recipes? I know I can google and find random recipes so that's really not what I'm looking for. If you make soup or something else from butternut squash, can you post your recipes, or links to ones you've used before?

I'm wondering if just baking them like you do with acorn squash would be any good - has anyone prepared them that way?

Thanks in advance, fellow food fans.

I've made this and it's really good. I hated making blended soups before I got an immersion blender.

I would also make a second batch, but with roasted squash, potatoes, and red bell pepper. Add the roasted vegetables before blending instead of boiling them.

I have roasted it in the oven with carrots, onions and fresh whole garlic cloves.I peel the quash and remove the seeds, cube it up. Then I take a baking sheet and add 1 bag baby carrots, 1 onion cut into chunks, 5-6 whole peeled garlic cloves, squash, salt, pepper olive oil and toss. Then add 2 sprigs of rosemary on top, bake on 400 for 45 minutes.

I like to peel the squash, and slice it very thin, like potato chips. Lay the squash slices on a cookie sheet, and spray with oil. Bake at 400 until the slices are crisp and slightly brown around the edges. Sprinkle with salt while still warm.

That sounds good too.

Baking them is an excellent way to fix them. You can use anything from butter and salt to a complicated glaze to season them with. Or fill the seed cavity with browned sausage or apples and walnuts or anything else you like.

I baked them and then topped them with a brown/wild rice blend (cooked with vegetable broth), toasted pecans and fresh sage.

This is my favorite vegetable, and always part of our Thanksgiving. Peel, remove seeds and cook like you would potatoes until tender (They're a bear to peel, so I stand it on end and go top to bottom with a veg peeler), drain thoroughly, and mash with a little brown sugar, salt and butter. After it's mashed, you can keep it warm on the stove to cook away any residual water that it retains. It should be dry, like mashed potatoes, when you're done.
This is the only way I fix it. I leave the other more fancy recipes for acorn squash and others.

The Pioneer Woman just had a good sounding recipe for acorn sqash, baked in the oven, on her Thanksgiving at the Ranch show. I'm sure you could use the same method for butternut if you wanted.
