Roasted Sweet Dumpling Squash

Easy to make and delicious.  The perfect fall treat!

Only 5 Ingredients

Sweet dumpling squash Butter - salted recommended Cinnamon Nutmeg Turmeric - optional

Wash and cut the squash

Wash the squash and cut it in half.  It is tough to cut and if you are struggling I added a collage in the post to show you how to cut it.

Remove seeds and poke holes

After cutting in half, use a spoon to remove the seeds.  Use a fork to poke holes into the skin side of the squash.

Prep for baking

Place both halves of the sweet dumpling squash skin down in a baking dish.  Add enough water so there is about 1 inch of water in dish.  

Prep for baking

Add 1 tablespoon of butter to the inside of each of the halves.   Sprinkle seasoning on top. Cover dish with foil.


Bake at 400 degrees covered with foil for 20 minutes. Remove foil and bake another 10-20 minutes until the flesh is fork tender.


We pour the melted butter into a small bowl after baking. It is delicious to have on the table to dip the sweet dumpling squash in.
