If your family likes butternut squash, this Slow Cooker Buttery Butternut Squash for a Crowd is an easy way to cook it in the casserole crock or a large oval slow cooker! Butternut Squash fans will go crazy over this, I promise!
It’s almost Thanksgiving, my favorite holiday of the year! For a few years now I’ve been sharing recipes to help you use the slow cooker to free up oven space on Thanksgiving day and I’ve collected those in a post with 50+ Recipes for a Slow Cooker or Instant Pot Thanksgiving, so if you’re still narrowing down the menu you might find some good ideas there.
I’m excited to share this amazing Slow Cooker Buttery Butternut Squash for a Crowd from Kalyn’s Kitchen. I know sweet potatoes are traditional for Thanksgiving, and I’ve made sweet potatoes in the casserole crock too, but for families that love butternut squash, this butternut squash would also be seriously delicious for a Thanksgiving side dish. When I tested this recipe with my niece Kara, we could not stop eating it! Of course butter makes butternut squash taste amazing, and even though this site focuses on healthier slow cooker recipes, I firmly believe that it’s okay to splurge on the diet a bit for a holiday meal. You can certainly use less butter if you prefer.
If you don’t need another Thanksgiving side dish, try this out another time when you’re making a nice dinner. You can make this in any large slow cooker, but if you use the Crock-Pot Casserole Crock Slow Cooker like I did, you can pop it in the to brown the edges while you put the rest of the food on the table; enjoy!
