Sweet Dumpling Squash, Honey-roasted
Sweet Dumpling Squash ~ how’s that for a cute little name?
I caught sight of a bushel basket full of these little green and white striped squashes recently at the market. After looking at the labels, I saw that they were Sweet Dumpling Squashes. Now I had some figuring out to do, as I scanned a plethora of recipes for them, while they sat adorning the kitchen counter for a few days.
This is what I came up with: a little sauce of honey and butter with onions and seasonings. The taste is magnificent ~ the blending of honey and butter is insanely tasty with the squash. I’ve made it several times already for its sweet and savory appeal; plus, it’s easy to make.
What more could you want? If you like squash, but haven’t tried this one, add it to your list of must tries!
