Roasted Squash Wedges

We used acorn squash for this recipe, but others, such as butternut or pumpkin, work just as well.


  • 2 acorn squash

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

  • 2 tablespoons honey

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • Pinch of ground nutmeg

  • ½ teaspoon coarse salt

  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut squash in half through the stem end, and remove seeds. Cut each half into three wedges, 1 1/2 to 2 inches thick. Place wedges in a large roasting pan.

  2. In a small bowl, combine melted butter, honey, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, and pepper. Toss squash with honey mixture. Roast squash, turning occasionally, until tender and golden brown, 35 to 45 minutes.
