What flavors go well with butternut squash?

If you want to change up the palette of this keto side dish recipe, you can try some of these other flavor combinations that go well with butternut squash. These are some of my favorites:

How do I scoop out the butternut squash?

After cutting the squash in half, use a spoon to scoop out the seeds before cooking/baking/roasting. This is similar to scooping seeds out of a fresh pumpkin.

What kind of cheese for stuffed butternut squash?

I love the combination of cream cheese, parmesan cheese, mozzarella cheese, and gorgonzola cheese for this recipe, but you can also use ricotta cheese or your favorite cheese too.

How do you store leftovers for this keto side dish?

Store stuffed butternut squash in an airtight container for up to 3 days in the refrigerator.

Where to buy butternut squash?

You can find butternut squash at most supermarkets and grocery stores. The smaller the squash, the easier it will be to cut in half before seeding and baking/roasting. If you have a farmers market nearby, it’s a great place to buy butternut squash. And don’t forget, Costco is another great place to purchase large quantities of fresh butternut squash too!

How do you reheat leftover keto butternut squash?

Butternut squash can be reheated in the microwave. Simply place your serving on a microwave safe dish and heat for 30 seconds at a time. Stir with a fork and reheat an additional 30 seconds until it is warm and heated to your likeness.
