For classic American cuisine in Alexandra, come to the Majestic. This Old Town spot has been serving up lunch and dinner for decades. You you're not likely to miss the place when you walk or drive past — just look for the big marquee sign.

3 Delicious Recipes for Butternut Squash

October 16, 2014 5:02 pm

You may be intimidated by butternut squash because of its strange shape, but this mild vegetable is actually very versatile and easy to prepare. Check out these three delicious ways to cook butternut squash for lunch, dinner—and even dessert!

Butternut Squash Curry [wholeliving.com]
This traditional Indian recipe involves cooking large chunks of butternut squash with curry and other flavorful spices. It’s best served over brown rice, which is healthier and heartier than the usual white variety. Add lime wedges and fresh cilantro as a garnish.

Sweet Butternut Squash and Coconut Jam [thekitchn.com]
You’ve never had a jam quite like this one before. Thick, gooey, and filled with the smoky flavor of butternut squash and the sweet taste of coconut, this elegant jam is best served on a thick piece of crusty bread.

Parmesan Butternut Squash Gratin [bettycrocker.com]
Though you’ve probably made (or at least tasted) cheesy potato gratin, this butternut squash gratin is a bit less carb-heavy and just as decadent. Panko breadcrumbs and grated Parmesan cheese bake to a crisp on the outside of the squash slices, leaving you with a tender, soft interior and a deliciously crunchy exterior. Plus, fresh parsley and chopped garlic give this side dish a rich aroma that will fill the whole house while baking.
