Maple Baked Butternut Squash

This is just another version of Sweet Baked Butternut Squash that I made for Thanksgiving. Instead of brown sugar, I'm using maple syrup. Makes good side dish.

2 medium sized butternut squash
1/2 cup maple syrup
6 tablespoon unsalted butter (or margarine)

Peel and cut butternut squash into wedges. Preheat oven to 350 °F.

Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Add squash into the baking sheet, cover squash with more aluminum foil. Bake for 30 mins.

Take squash out of the oven. Mix maple syrup with butter, drizzle half of the mixture on top of the squash, and return it to the oven for another 15 minutes on 400 °F.

Drizzle with remaining syrup mixture before serving.
