Chances are, when you started looking for recipes to cook butternut squash you probably weren't thinking about using your gas grill to do it.
But take a moment and have a look. The Honey and Bacon will love you for it.
Cooking butternut squash in foil on your grill is no harder or much different then if you cooked it in your oven.
And the really good thing, it free's up your oven if you need to cook other things at the same time.
And don't mind the darker marks in the picture above, the honey tends to caramelize a bit and some of the bacon pieces get extra crispy, that just adds even more flavor!
Don't be afraid to experiment a bit when cooking your butternut squash, maybe a little brown sugar, or some Cajun seasoning?
Better yet, when you bring it in from the grill and unwrap it from the foil, put a little butter in the hollow before you scoop it out!
