Maple Roasted Delicata Squash

Total Time1 hr 30 mins
Servings: 1 squash


  • 1 delicata squash
  • 1 Tablespoon maple syrup
  • salt
  • fresh ground pepper


  • Preheat oven to 425. Line a baking pan with foil. Baked on squash juice is hard to remove so make sure the foil is covering the entire pan.
  • Slice the squash in half the long way. Scoop out and discard all the seeds and loose pulp. Put squash on the roasting pan cavity side up.
  • Divide the maple syrup evenly between the squash halves. Grind on plenty of pepper and shake on some salt.
  • Cover the pan with foil. Bake for 1-2 hours until the squash is tender when poked with a fork. These squashes come in a range of sizes but the average needs to cook for about 80-90 minutes.
  • Scoop the squash into a serving bowl. Stir until creamy and adjust for salt and pepper. Alternately, serve chunks in the rind hot from the oven.
