This collection of 20 Easy Butternut Squash recipes will give you lots of options for this hearty winter squash: soups, side dishes, casseroles, salads, and more!
I’ve been (sadly) intimidated by butternut squash. Really, I’ve been intimidated by pretty much all winter squashes, except spaghetti squash. I’ve been cooking spaghetti squash for years (our favorite is my Bacon-Parmesan Spaghetti Squash recipe), so it’s no big thing. But how silly is that? Butternut squash intimidates me, but spaghetti squash doesn’t?
The first time I cooked with butternut squash was in 2010. Five years ago.
Then, in 2015, I decided it was time to make better use of this winter squash. That’s when I made Maple Glazed Butternut Squash with Bacon and oh my. This changed everything for me. Not only was it one of the best vegetable side dishes I’ve ever made, but it was SO EASY.
My love of butternut squash has been born and now I want it even more. So, I’ve been checking out lots of butternut squash recipes. Luckily, there is some super talented food bloggers out there and when they heard I was putting together a butternut squash recipe collection, they were eager to share with all of you.
I’ve compiled all of their butternut squash recipe links below — you’ll find that all of these recipes either don’t have a lot of ingredients and/or they don’t have a lot of complicated steps. Just click on the recipe title or the photo to visit their post. And if you like their recipe too, be sure to pin their post to one of your Pinterest boards and leave them a comment that Home Cooking Memories sent you! Enjoy!
