A fun side dish for any barbeque
Sweet and savory side dish of butternut squash, pre boiled, seasoned and then grilled to perfection.
If you have a buddy on hand, get them to preheat the grill for you while you prepare the squash. Our grill is charcoal so we always leave one side empty for indirect grilling for skewers and veggies. If yours is a gas bbq, just leave the burners off on one side. If you find your grill doesn't get that hot, I would suggest boiling the cubes for a couple minutes to get them started before grilling.
Peel the butternut squash, remove the seeds and cut into cubes about 1-2 inches thick. Thread them onto the skewers.
Add the cinnamon, ginger, salt and pepper to melted butter, whisk and then brush half the mixture onto cubes. Cook the skewers on the unheated side of the grill, with the lid down for about 20-25 minutes, or until the squash is soft. You can check by poking it with a fork. You can lay them down on the direct heat for a more charred/caramelized taste, too.
Mix the brown sugar into the remaining melted butter mixture. When the squash is done cooking, remove from skewers into a bowl and toss with the butter mixture. Serve hot.
