Brown-Sugar-Glazed Winter Squash
Roasted, glazed squash sometimes turns out soggy, stringy, and burnt. We wanted creamy squash with a crackling, sweet exterior.
Why This Recipe Works
For our Brown Sugar-Glazed Winter Squash recipe, we started the squash cut-side down on a preheated baking sheet in a hot oven. The preheated sheet prevented the squash from sticking, and gave it a jump-start. Once it was tender, we turned the squash cut-side up, brushed it liberally with a sweet, brown sugar glaze, and broiled it. The browned glaze brought out the best in the winter squash and added textural contrast to the creamy flesh.
