Grilled Hasselbeck Butternut Squash with Bay Leaves

Discover how to transform butternut squash into a grilled delicacy with bay leaves for an aromatic feast. Perfect for any meal, this recipe brings a unique twist to your grill.


  • 1 large butternut squash or 2–3 small honeynut squash (about 3 lbs total)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper
  • 1 Fresno chile, thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup, preferably grade B
  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 6–8 dried bay leaves


  1. Preheat & Prep: Preheat your Arteflame Grill. Halve the squash lengthwise, scoop out seeds, peel, and rub with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.

  2. Sauce Preparation: On the grill's side plancha, combine chile, maple syrup, butter, and vinegar. Simmer until it thickens into a glaze, then keep warm.

  3. Scoring: Once cooled, score the rounded sides of the squash halves crosswise without cutting all the way through.

  4. Grilling: Place squash, scored sides up, on the grill. Tuck bay leaves between slices and season. Grill, basting with the glaze every 10 minutes, until tender and coated in a rich brown glaze, about 45–60 minutes.

  5. Serving: Top with reserved chiles and serve.

  6. Preparation Ahead: Can be prepared and roasted 4 hours ahead, covered and stored at room temperature. Reheat before serving.

Enjoy a unique grilled butternut squash with aromatic bay leaves, a rich glaze, and a touch of heat from Fresno chiles, all brought together on your Arteflame Grill for a perfect smokey flavor.

Testimonial Martha Stewart
Testimonial Martha Stewart 5/5 stars I love this grill - it's made of half-inch carbon steel and corten "weathering" steel with a cooktop that heats from the center out.
Testimonial Steven Raichlen
Testimonial Steven Raichlen 5/5 stars It looks like a Claus Oldenburg sculpture. It functions like a wood burning grill & plancha. It's great for steak, fragile fish, veggies and everything in between.
