Roasted pumpkin with honey, butter, and cayenne pepper are the greatest. Only three ingredients are needed for a delicious fall dish.
There are just two weeks left till Halloween, and it seems like everyone, and everything is decked up in ghouls and pumpkins. So today, I’m sharing a recipe for honey butter roasted pumpkin, which is a great way to use up some of your pumpkins this fall.
This dish is as easy to make as it is tasty. It’s hard to believe that pumpkins can taste this amazing.
Honey, butter, and pumpkins are the only three items needed to make this honey butter roasted pumpkin. Adding cayenne pepper is optional, but I like a little kick in my food, so I decided to do so.
A roasted pumpkin that’s soft, smooth, silky, sweet, and buttery is the end result, and it’s so amazing you’ll want to serve it as the main course.
My preference is more miniature kabocha pumpkins, but regular pumpkins work just as well. Slice the pumpkin into wedges by picking a smaller pumpkin. I sliced the pumpkin with a cleaver. This pumpkin season, give my dish a try — you’ll be glad you did.
