  • Butternut squash
  • 2 crushed garlic Cloves
  • handful of sage
  • handul of breadcrumbs
  • Olive oil / Butter


  1. Peel, deseed and halve your butternut lengthways.
  2. Place on a baking tray and slide into the oven for 5-10 mins.
  3. In a small bowl mix together garlic, sage, breadcrumbs and either a generous glug of olive oil or a couple of tablespoons of butter. It should form a thickish paste
  4. Slide the butternut out of the oven and carefully place each one thick side down on a chopping board.
  5. Place a chopstick on either side of the butternut, lengthways.
  6. Carefully slice the butternut thinly widthways but not all the way through – using the chopsticks as a preventative measure from cutting all the way through.
  7. Place the butternuts back on to the tray and top with the sage and breadcrumb mix
  8. Slice back into the oven until the butternut is tender and the topping is crispy and delicious
