One of my favorite flavor combinations is butternut squash and honey. Truly!  They just work together. Add butter and panko and you can just watch this dish disappear! It’s like magic. I usually make two pans of honey glazed butternut squash at a time….it is even better as leftovers!

First, peel and remove the seeds from the butternut squash. Then, cut the squash into thin slices. Isn’t the color amazing! Go HERE to see how to easily peel and seed the squash.

Put the cut slices into a microwave safe bowl, add water and cover with plastic. Cook for about 6 minutes until the squash just starts to get tender.

Add oil, salt and pepper to the squash and stir carefully to combine. You can see in the photo that I went a little wild with my stirring and tore some of the squash pieces. Oops! That is what NOT to do.

Then, carefully stack the slices into your baking pan and drizzle with honey mixture. Bake the squash until it is really tender, about 50 minutes or so.

After that, sprinkle on the cooked butter and panko and serve.  Then watch it disappear!
