With just a few of simple ingredients from your pantry and a baking tray, this dish is much easier than it looks and makes an amazing side dish that is a comforting and fun addition to any Fall meal or holiday table and will wow your family and guests. The aromatic, earthy oregano and sage pair really well with that slightly sweet flavour of the butternut squash.
Hasselback is a technique of slicing a vegetable or fruit thinly while still leaving it connected, opening it up like an accordion. It’s visually appealing and it’s also a great way to insert more flavor into the dish.

  • 1 / 800 g Butternut squash, halved lengthwise, peeled, and seeded
  • 2 tbsp Olive oil plus more to coat
  • 80 g Maple syrup (or honey)
  • 1/2 tsp Chilli pepper flakes
  • 1 tbsp Wholegrain Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp Sage leaves, finely chopped (or marjoram, rosemary or thyme)
  • 1 tbsp Oregano, finely chopped (or marjoram, rosemary or thyme)
  • Sea salt
  • Freshly milled black pepper
  • A handful of walnuts, chopped
  1. Preheat your oven to 200C / 180C fan-forced / /400F. Cut the butternut squash in half lengthways, then scoop out the seeds and pulp and discard. Remove the skin with a vegetable peeler.
  2. Coat the pumpkin halves with oil and season with salt. Place pumpkin halves, cut-side down, on a baking tray. Roast for 20 minutes, then set aside to cool slightly (par-cooking makes the pumpkin easier to cut).
  3. While the squash is in the oven, combine tpgether the olive oil, maple syrup, chilli flakes, Dijon mustard, chopped herbs, salt and pepper and mix well with a small whisk until completely combined.
  4. Using a thin metal spatula, transfer pumpkin to a cutting board. Place a chopstick along each long side of pumpkin. Using a sharp knife, cut slits into pumpkin crossways about 4mm apart, cutting through to chopsticks to prevent cutting all the way through. Return the pumpkin to the baking tray. Repeat with remaining pumpkin half.
  5. Brush about 1/2 of the maple syrup mixture over the pumpkin halves and roast for about 45 minutes, brushing pumpkin every 15 minutes with the pan juice. At the last 15 minutes, add the chopped walnuts to the remaining syrup glaze and stir to combine. Spoon the nut mixture over the top of the pumpkin halves and bake until golden and tender.
  6. To serve, carefully remove the squash from the baking sheet with a spatulas and transfer them to a platter. Drizzle the pan juice over and sprinkle with extra herbs and walnuts. Enjoy!

Easy Maple Glazed Carrots

What are the best kinds of carrots to use?

I prefer to use large, fresh carrots that I then cut into coin sized pieces. You will want to first peel the carrots and then slice them into a 12 inch button.

You can also use baby carrots (whole) or frozen sliced carrots that have been thawed.

How long do cooked carrots stay good for?

You will want to store leftovers in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 5 days.

To reheat them you can warm slowly on the stove top or in the microwave. Add a pat of butter to your leftovers as they warm up. This will help to keep them from drying out and adds a little freshness to the dish.

Easy Maple Glazed CarrotsWhat can you serve with Glazed Carrots?

Glazed Carrots are the perfect dish for any holiday. I think of Easter, Thanksgiving or Christmas because it pairs so well with dishes typically served on those occasions.

But they are absolutely perfect for your weekday dinner, too. They would be delicious with baked chicken or a roast. Whatever you choose they are such a great way to add vegetables to your meal.

Can you prepare glazed carrots ahead of time?

You can definitely prep the carrots about a day before you make them. Peel and cut them and store them in an airtight container so they will be ready to make right away.

While you can always reheat your prepared carrots they taste the best made fresh so you should wait to prepare them with the glaze until the day of.

Mashed Sweet Potatoes topped with Cinnamon Maple Butter Sauce for tender, flavorful sweet potatoes perfect for the holidays!

Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Maple Cinnamon ButterSweet Potato recipes are one of my favorite side dishes. I love the subtle, sweet flavor and hello, they’re good for you! Today I share my favorite way to make make mashed sweet potatoes as well as a sweet cinnamon butter that goes along perfectly.

Drizzle the potatoes with my butter sauce and enjoy the incredible cinnamon-maple-sweet potato combination. Maybe even add a dollop of whipped cream as I did, or go a more standard route and enjoy it with some mini marshmallows.

Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Maple Cinnamon ButterMashed Sweet Potato Ingredients

Here’s what you’ll need:

–4 sweet potatoes, scrubbed: Be sure to get actual sweet potatoes! They’re more reddish in color. (Often people confuse them with Yams, which are lighter, more brown in color.)

–Melted butter: You’ll need 1/4 cup. I prefer salted butter, but you’re welcome to use what you’d like.

–Maple syrup: Make sure it’s REAL maple syrup. You’ll use 1/4 cup and trust me, you’ll be able to tell the difference.

–Flour: all purpose works well, but you can also use a gluten-free variety.

–Ground cinnamon: you’ll just need 1 teaspoon.

–Vanilla Extract: Vanilla flavor makes this recipe sing so I suggest using a good quality vanilla extract or a Vanilla Bean Paste. I linked my favorites!

How to make Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Maple Cinnamon ButterHow to make Mashed Sweet Potatoes

I first bake my potatoes exactly as Amanda instructed here, in her post, “Easiest Way to Bake a Sweet Potato.It’s not faster to bake the potatoes, but I think the flavor is so much better!

Bake the Sweet Potatoes

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F, cut off the ends of the potatoes and line a pan with foil.

Bake potatoes directly on the pan, until the internal temperature reaches 210 degrees F. Most regular sized sweet potatoes will take about an hour. My monstrosities took 2 hours. If you don’t have that much time, you can cut the potatoes in half.

mashed sweet potatoesMake the Butter Sauce

While the potatoes are cooking, combine the butter, maple syrup, flour, cinnamon, and vanilla in a glass measuring cup. Whisk until smooth.

Microwave for 1 minute, just until the mixture begins to boil. The sauce will thicken as it cools. (I like to serve mine warm.)

Once potatoes are done baking, remove the skins and mash with a fork. Sprinkle with a little coarse salt to enhance the flavors.

Serve drizzled with Cinnamon Maple Butter Sauce and a dollop of whipped cream.

I like to drizzle half the butter sauce onto the sweet potatoes in the serving dish, then set the rest of it on the table for people to drizzle a tad more onto their serving. Yum!

maple cinnamon butter for sweet potatoesCan I microwave Sweet Potatoes?

If you’re pressed for time, you can microwave the sweet potatoes instead. Cut each into 3-4 pieces and place in a medium sized microwavable dish, preferably with a lid. Add 1/2 cup water to the dish. Cover and microwave for 5-7 minutes, until potatoes are soft. Scrape potato out of the skins and proceed with the recipe.

You can bake whole sweet potatoes, cool and then place in the fridge up to 10 days in advance. This is great if you choose to make these mashed sweet potatoes during the busy holiday season.

What is the difference between a sweet potato and a yam?

Often used interchangeably but the two have a few distinct differences. For instance, the skin of yam looks more like brown tree bark whereas a sweet potato appears more reddish-brown. Real yams are also more starchy and less sweet.

Do mashed sweet potatoes freeze well?

Cooked and mashed sweet potatoes can be frozen if sealed in an airtight container. You can freeze the mashed sweet potatoes for up to 12 months.  Just keep in mind that freezer burn and nutrient loss can happen if stored for too long.

The skin of a sweet potato is edible, in fact, it even has a good amount of nutrients such as fiber and potassium. That being said it is a personal preference on whether or not you wish to eat them as they can be somewhat of a texture issue for some people.

How do you reheat mashed sweet potatoes?

To reheat your mashed sweet potatoes, stir in a little cream or butter to help them rehydrate and microwave for a few minutes, stirring every so often. Once warm you should be good to go. You can also choose to reheat them on the stovetop as well.
