Roasted Butternut Squash with Sage Butter and Cheeseburger Stuffing



3 Large Butternut Squash (washed and cut in half length-wise)
1/4 of Olive Oil
l Packet of Fresh Sage
2 Tsp. dry Italian herbs
2 Tsp. dry Basil herb
1Tsp. of Pink Himalayan Salt
1Tsp of Black Pepper
1 Habanero Pepper (Cut thinly)


Preheat your oven to 375 degree F. Get a Baking Tray and place either a sheet of wax paper or Parchment paper on the tray. Make sure wash your Butternut Squash before cutting in half. Drizzle your 1/4 of Olive Oil over your Butternut Squash evenly then add all your dry herbs except your fresh Sage. Add your thinly sliced Habanero pepper to the squash. Place your tray in the oven and Bake until done. About 1 hour 20 minutes.



6 small Burger Patties or two Large ones or 1LB ( I Custom made mine)
1 1/2 Cups of Homemade Ricotta Cheese
2 Jalapeno Peppers (Optional)
4 Fresh Sprigs of Sage
1/4 Cup of Butter

Sage Butter

Finely chop your Sage Leaves and add it to your 1/4 cup of Butter in a small bowl. Using a Spoon or Fork mix and stir well.


To make Burger Patties you will need to purchase a pack from your local supermarket or go to your favourite Butcher Shop and order 4 large Burger Patties that comes pre-seasoned. If not just purchase regular ones and season them with your favourite herbs and spices. Shape your Burger patties into Small patties about 2 Inches wide. Use a Cookie cutter if you feel you need to be precise. You can make them whatever size you prefer.

Heat a Saucepan or Stove top Griddle on Medium and add 2 TBSP. Olive Oil and cook your Patties on your Griddle like I did for 3 minutes each side. Add your Sage Butter on top of your Beef patties, 1/2 Tsp. for each patty. Then add your Ricotta Cheese evenly over all your Burger Patties. I made extra in case the kids wanted second helpings. I used the Jalapeño Peppers on the side by slicing them thinly in circles. This is optional, you don’t have to use the Jalapeño peppers you can substitute it for something else. The Jalapeño Peppers tasted delicious with the Roasted Butternut Squash.
