Butternut Squash and Yukon Gold Potatoes with Sage-Brown Butter
- 2 spray(s) cooking spray
- 2 pound(s) uncooked butternut squash, peeled, cut into 1-inch chunks ( about 6 cups)
- 2 pound(s) uncooked Yukon gold potato(es), cut into 1-inch chunks (about 6 cups)
- 1 1/2 tsp kosher salt
- 1/4 tsp black pepper, freshly ground
- 1/4 cup(s) fresh sage, leaves, packed
- 4 Tbsp unsalted butter
- Place a large, rimmed, nonstick baking sheet in oven. Preheat oven to 425ºF.
- Carefully remove warmed baking sheet from oven; coat with cooking spray. Place squash and potatoes on prepared baking sheet and sprinkle with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Roast, tossing about halfway through cooking, until squash and potatoes are tender and slightly browned, about 35 to 40 minutes.
- Meanwhile, after vegetables have cooked for about 20 minutes, place butter in a small saucepan (the smaller the better); set pan over medium-low heat. Let butter sit until it melts; continue to cook butter until it foams. Start swirling pan and continue to cook butter until foam subsides and milk solids brown. The butter will have a nutty smell - be careful not to cook it too long or it can burn. Remove pan from heat and immediately crumble sage into butter (be careful, the butter will bubble).
- Transfer squash and potatoes to a serving platter or bowl; drizzle with hot butter mixture and toss to coat. Yields about 3/4 cup per serving.
