Grilled Winter Squash


These little squash kebabs make an excellent side dish. The secret is to make sure the squash gets cooked through without burning on the surface. This is why these kebabs are grilled indirectly.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: Serves 4


  • 1 1/2 pounds winter squash
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 6 bamboo skewers


Peel squash, remove seeds, and cut into 1-2 inch cubes. Preheat grill with a hot fire. If using a charcoal grill prepare for indirect grilling. Combine cinnamon with melted butter. Thread squash onto skewers and brush with about half the melted butter. If using a gas grill turn burners off on one side. Place skewers on the unheated side and cook with the lid down for 15-20 minutes. The squash is done when it is easily pierced with a fork. While grilling mix remaining melted butter with honey. When the squash is done, remove from skewers and toss with butter/honey mixture. Serve hot.
