Marie’s Grilled Butternut Squash

Marie decided to experiment with her grill the other day and the result was pure deliciousness. Her family loved it and so will yours! The nutrition facts were designed at Calorie Count.

Marie’s Grilled Butternut Squash


1 Butternut Squash
2 T Vegetable Oil
1/8 Salt, or to taste
¼ t black Pepper, or to taste
1 t Chili Powder, or to taste
1 t Garlic Powder, to taste
1 tsp local honey, or to taste and totally optional

Rinse and slice a bit off the large end of the squash. Remove seeds with a spoon. Peeling is optional – the skin grills up tender and tasty. Slice the squash into ½ inch thick rings (or halves if you like) and put in baggie with everything except the honey - shake until well coated, adjust the liquid if there is not enough to coat all the squash.
Grill on hot grill for approx. 10 minutes. Brush with honey while cooking.


  1. This sounds great. Have never used honey on grilled squash, so am looking forward to trying this recipe.

  2. Has anyone tried this? I am afraid the honey would burn?

    1. the picture on the grill is of Marie's honey basted squash! Note that she is not using very much, just a touch. But I doubt it would burn anyway as the squash does not take long to grill.

  3. Did this on my George Foreman inside. Four minutes cooking time. Just brushed the top with honey. Cooked it in two batches, put the first ones in a warm oven to stay until dinner was served. They were. Hit!
