Maple Sage Roasted Delicata Squash - A Family Feast

Maple Sage Roasted Delicata Squash

  • Prep Time: 15 mins
  • Cook Time: 25 mins
  • Total Time: 40 minutes
  • Yield: 4-6 servings


  • 2 pounds whole delicate squash
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons Kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons fresh sage, cut into pieces
  • 2 tablespoons real maple syrup


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Slice off both ends of the squash and discard. Cut the squash in half end to end and with a spoon, scoop out seeds and discard. Then cut into one inch thick half-moon slices leaving skins on. (The skins can be eaten!)
  3. Place in a bowl and toss with oil and salt then lay out on a sheet pan and bake for ten minutes. Flip, and then bake for 10-15 more minutes until tender.
  4. While squash is roasting, heat butter and sage in a small sauce pan with maple syrup for a few minutes to incorporate flavors. Set aside.
  5. When squash comes out of the oven, toss with butter and sage mixture and serve immediately.
