Our friends over at Date Night Doins have come through again with this cast iron Dutch oven recipe for candied butternut squash. If your looking to replace a typical starchy sweet potato side dish with something equally sweet but low carb, this is the dish for you! Butternut squash looks a lot like sweet potatoes and it candies perfectly.
This recipe is cooked backyard style in a Dutch oven on the grill with Ken’s famous “kiss of smoke”. Remember to watch your cooking time and temperature. You can even make candied butternut squash in your regular oven, but, then you lose all the flavors you get from cooking outdoors.
