Five Deliciously Different Butternut Squash Recipes!

Yesterday I decided it was fall. Which means it’s time to get out my list of butternut squash recipes. Then make them all!

We’ve had some cool, rainy weather, the leaves are starting to change, warm jackets have appeared on my kids as they make their way to the bus stop. Yet for me, fall doesn’t officially arrive until thick, hearty soups and earthy butternut squash recipes arrive in my kitchen.

There are so many fantastic butternut squash recipes available that it’s difficult to choose!

I ultimately decided to make a simple butternut squash soup in my Vitamix for a quick and healthy meal. Thick and hearty, a few slices of warm bread was all it needed. I have two other favorites from my vast list of butternut squash recipes that I was thisclose to making, too…Butternut Squash Mac n Cheese with Buttery Bacon Breadcrumbs and Penne with Butternut Squash and Goat Cheese. Both are sooo good and use butternut squash in ways that you don’t normally think of. My daughters love the Butternut Squash Mac n Cheese, it’s a great dish if you have kids or if you love comfort food and want to increase the health factor.

I also found these Five Delicious Different Butternut Squash Recipes that sound amazing. I personally plan on making them all as soon as possible and hope you do, too!

    These are great! I'm crazy about winter squash, and of course always love roasting butternuts, but have you ever steamed them? Steamed acorn squash is one of my favorite foods, but I've never tried it with b-nut.

    Great recipe finds! I planted waaay too many butternuts this year so I'm starting to look for new options as I there's only so many squash I can wrap in bacon.

    @Meister I steam butternuts in the microwave all the time. Put both halves of the squash face-down in a casserole dish, add a splash of h2o, lid and nuke for 10ish minutes. After a 10 minute rest, they'll scoop right out (I like diced chipotle and butter mixed into mine).
