Roasted Sweet Dumpling Squash

Since the Fall season started, I've been in the mood to cook Squash.  This squash is called Sweet Dumpling.  It has yellow skin with bright orange or deep green stripes.  It's super cute and flavorful when baked in the oven. The flesh is starchy with a slight corn flavor.  This size is perfect for stuffing too, but I decided to just glaze it with some honey and roast it in the oven.

You can find this squash right in the produce section of your supermarket.  During this time a year, you can find them pretty much anywhere. 

Take a spoon and scoop out the seeds.  I kept the seeds, I'm going to dry them and hope that I can grow a plant next year.

I am super happy with the results..the honey gave the squash a nice glaze.  The Sweet Dumpling is living up to it's name, it's really sweet and delicious.


2 squash cut in half, remove and discard seeds
1 tsp of olive oil
1/4 cup of honey

Preheat oven to 400 Degrees F

Season the squash with olive oil and salt.  Place on baking sheet with skin side up.  Bake for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes  remove from the oven and flip the squash, brush  with honey and put back in the oven, now skin side down, and bake for another 15 minutes, until tender and the honey has caramelized.  Enjoy with your favorite side of protein.
