Recipe type: Side dish
Serves: 5 servings
  • 1 medium butternut squash, peeled, seeded, cut into 1½-inch pieces
  • 1 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • ½ tsp. kosher salt
  • ¼ tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 Tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tsp. fresh chopped thyme
  • ¼ cup hazelnuts, roughly chopped
  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Arrange squash on a baking sheet and toss with oil, salt, and pepper. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, tossing every 15 minutes to prevent burning.
  2. Melt butter in a medium skillet over medium heat. Cook until butter becomes dark amber and gives off a nutty aroma, stirring often, about 3 minutes, and be careful not to let it burn. Add garlic, thyme, and hazelnuts; cook for 30 seconds, stirring continuously; pull mixture off heat.
  3. Arrange squash on a serving platter or in a bowl. Spoon brown butter hazelnut mixture evenly overtop.
