Prep: 15 min | Cook: 60 min | Total: 1 hour and 30 minutes

Serving Size: Serves 6


  • 1 large butternut squash
  • 1 head of garlic separated but not peeled
  • 2 TBSP good olive oil
  • 2.5 TBSP pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 ounces thinly sliced pancetta chopped
  • 16 whole fresh sage leaves
  • French bread (for serving)


  1. Preheat your oven to 400°.
  2. Peel and remove seeds from butternut squash, then cut into 1-inch cubes.
  3. Place the cubed squash in a baking dish alongside the unpeeled garlic cloves. The baking side should be large enough to hold everything all in one layer.
  4. Toss garlic and cubed squash with olive oil, maple syrup, salt, and pepper, and bake for 20 to 30 minutes, until squash begins to brown. Turn everything once during baking.
  5. Sprinkle pancetta and sage leaves evenly over squash and continue to bake for another 20 to 30 minutes, until squash and garlic are tender and caramelized.
  6. Season to taste. Serve alongside French Bread. Guests can spread the roasted garlic onto the bread.
