Serve Southern Squash Hash Tonight


It took me a while to warm up to butternut squash. Don’t get me wrong—I loved it when someone else prepared it, but I was intimidated to tackle it in my own kitchen.

What helped me was a good knife and a hefty dose of patience when splitting one in half for roasting. After a little practice, the gourd became a go-to, and now I find many ways to incorporate it into my fall and winter meals.

Here’s another recipe to add to the list, this one from beloved Georgia caterer Lee Epting of Epting Events. This oft-requested recipe is so satisfying you might want to make it the centerpiece of your next weeknight dinner.
