Roasted Sweet Dumpling Squash. Simple. Easy. Sweet squash. It looks a bit like an acorn squash, but it’s multicolored. And it tastes SO much better.
Roasted Sweet Dumpling Squash—SWWWEEEET!
Have you tried Roasted Sweet Dumpling Squash? Sweet dumpling squash is definitely my favorite squash. Roasting it brings out the natural sweetness. And this sweet dumpling squash recipe is super easy with only two ingredients.
I had never tried this particular squash until a couple years ago. I thought—since it was shaped like an Acorn Squash—that it was just a variation of that squash. But it is much sweeter when roasted, and the texture is more like a Butternut Squash. I guess that’s how it gets its name. I am sure you could bake it the way I make acorn squash and it would be delicious, too.
What You Need
For this recipe, you need a good knife, cutting board, measuring spoons, and a baking sheet. I always use a jelly roll pan instead of a sideless baking sheet. Save yourself some time and get Parchment Paper to cover the Jelly Roll Pan. You’ll have a much easier time cleaning up. Or try one of the nifty silicone baking mats.
