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!

Honey-roasted Sweet Dumpling Squash


2 sweet dumpling squash
1 green onion, sliced
4 tablespoons butter, melted
2 tablespoons honey
½ teaspoon Mrs. Dash Extra Spicy
Salt and pepper, to taste


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Melt butter in a small pan over low heat.
Add onions and honey and whisk well.
Cut squash in half, scoop out seeds and place on baking sheet.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Divide honey mixture evenly into each squash.
Baste squash with mixture every 15 minutes.
Roast until squash is golden brown and easily pierced with a fork.

Sweet and savory delicious!
