Westminster Holidays: Lemon Maple Squash Recipe

Mashed potatoes get all the glory during Thanksgiving, but if you are looking to mix things up and try something new, we have a wonderful Lemon Maple Squash recipe from the cooking experts at the Food Network. The side dish is a must-try food and will help add a bit of variety to your holiday meal. Here are the simple directions. Have a happy Thanksgiving!


Directions


Chop 4 pounds butternut squash into squares while removing the seeds. Put the squash cut-side up on a large sheet pan. Next mix ⅓ of a cup maple syrup, 1/3 cup of water, juice from a medium sized lemon, 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes, and salt & pepper (just a pinch).

Next, pour the mix on top of the squash and add 4 tablespoons of melted butter. Bake everything for roughly 20 minutes at 350 degrees. After, flip the squash and let it bake until caramelized (usually about another 25 minutes).
