Butternut Squash

FEATURED HOT BAR: Butternut Squash

The Roche Bros. Hot Bar often keeps people coming back for seconds, and more likely than not you’ll see our customers adding Our Signature Butternut Squash to their plates.

Butternut squash is a type of winter squash, also known in Australia and New Zealand as butternut pumpkin. As it ripens, its orange color becomes deeper and its flavor sweeter. The most popular type, the Waltham Butternut, was “born” down the street in Waltham, Mass., developed by Robert E. Young at the Waltham Experiment Station, where the focus is new and innovative approaches to farming.

Our Signature Butternut Squash is homemade with butter and brown sugar to bring out the sweetness of the squash. It’s a melt-in-your-mouth side dish that pairs beautifully with virtually any main course from fish to chicken to steak, or as one of several vegetables on your plate.
