‘Tis the season. NO—not to be jolly and sing Christmas carols. We still have a good month left of fall enjoyment. That means to leave the Christmas decorations in the basement, put down the Christmas songs CD, and bring on the fall foods and drinks. Butternut squash has become a food staple of the fall season. But there is only so much Butternut Squash Soup that you can eat. SO…for the next month, try some of these. You’re welcome.

10. Butternut Squash Chantrelle and Brie Pizza


Pizza pizza! Girlfriend and I tried making this ourselves and it came out pretty well. Any variation would be delicious, but I saw this version and I think the brie would make the perfect pairing with the butternut squash. All it needs now is some short ribs…

Pumpkin muffins are delicious, but what about butternut squash? I could see these muffins being eaten as snacks, dessert, or even with a savory breakfast. Maybe some butterscotch chips in these?

8. Butternut Squash Stuffed Shells


When I first saw this recipe, I thought the shells would be stuffed with some kind of butternut squash mixture. Instead, it is the traditional stuffed shells, but the sauce is a savory butternut mixture. Looking for a quick meal on a cold night? Try these out.

4. Butternut Squash Lasagna


I’ve always loved spinach lasagna. Adding butternut squash to a lasagna is quite the twist. Maybe the Italians can make this during Thanksgiving rather than the regular lasagna. I’d be a little more open to taking a piece on the famed TURKEY day.

2. Butternut Squash Souffle


Finally, something to do with those ramekins that you have tucked away in the back of the cabinet. I’m sure you’ve finally decided how to master the molten lava cake, so why not give an actual souffle a try? And why not make it in true fall style?

1. Ground Beef & Butternut Squash Breakfast Skillet


Breakfast is my favorite meal. Fall is my favorite season. Hence my addiction to things like pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin spice lattes and pumpkin spice coffee. But there’s only so much pumpkin to go around. Butternut squash soup can take a back seat—bring on breakfast for dinner.
