Caramelized Butternut Squash with Brown Sugar (recipe from 50campfires.com)
2 medium butternut squash (4-5 pounds total), chopped
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
¼ cup light brown sugar, packed
1 ½ teaspoon kosher salt
½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- Cut off and discard the ends of each butternut squash. Peel the squash, cut them in half lengthwise and remove the seeds. Cut the squash into 1 ¼-inch to 1 1/2-inch cubes and place them on a large greased piece of tin foil. Add the melted butter, brown sugar, salt, and pepper.
- Bring in all sides of the tin foil and close, making sure there are no openings. Cook in the coals of the campfire 45-55 minutes, until the squash is tender and the glaze begins to caramelize.
Note: this can also be cooked on a grill, checking periodically to see if squash is tender.
