Hasselback Butternut Squash with Bay Leaves and Chile Glaze Recipe

Transform your holiday meals with this Hasselback Butternut Squash recipe, featuring aromatic bay leaves and a spicy chile glaze, all brought together on the Arteflame Grill for a perfect blend of flavors.

Cooked on the Arteflame Grill

Serves: 8


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


  1. Prep the Squash:

    • Halve the squash lengthwise and scoop out the seeds. Remove the skin and white flesh to reach the deep orange flesh.
    • Rub the squash with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
    • Microwave the squash halves until they start to soften, about 6-10 minutes.
  2. Make the Chile Glaze:

    • On the Arteflame grill, bring the sliced Fresno chile, maple syrup, butter, and vinegar to a simmer in a small saucepan. Stir occasionally.
    • Remove the chile slices once the desired heat level is reached and set aside.
    • Continue simmering until the glaze thickens enough to coat a spoon, about 6–8 minutes. Keep the glaze warm on the cooler edge of the grill.
  3. Grill the Squash:

    • Transfer the partially cooked squash to the grill.
    • Score the rounded sides of the squash halves crosswise, taking care not to cut all the way through.
    • Tuck bay leaves between some of the slices and season again with salt and pepper.
    • Place the squash on the grill, scored sides up. Cover with a stainless pan or bowl to create an oven effect.
    • Baste with the chile glaze every 10 minutes, using a pastry brush to lift off any glaze browning too much, until tender and the glaze forms a rich brown coating, about 30-40 minutes.
  4. Serve:

    • Serve the Hasselback squash topped with the reserved chile slices.
    • Squash can be roasted 4 hours ahead, cooled to just warm, covered, and stored at room temperature. Reheat before serving.

Enjoy this unique Hasselback Butternut Squash with Bay Leaves and a delectable Chile Glaze, a perfect holiday-worthy dish to prepare on your Arteflame grill.

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.
