Have you had roasted butternut squash recently?  As soon as fall rolls around, this delicious and flavorful squash begins to appear in the grocery stores and farmers markets.  It is a fantastic golden vegetable that pairs perfectly with beef, pork and poultry, but especially turkey!  That’s right – when roasted with a few other sweet and savory ingredients, this butternut squash becomes an amazing side dish that will be a showstopper on your holiday table.

Flavors of roasted butternut squash

Butternut squash is naturally sweet, and when roasted becomes slightly caramelized.  To compliment this sweetness, I’ve included honey crisp apple, savory bacon, shallots and pecans to add a nutty crunch.  I also glazed this medley with a bit of apple cider and brown sugar to bring out the sweetness and bring together all of the ingredients.  Added to a baking sheet and topped with just a bit of seasoning, this combination is roasted to perfection.

Just before serving, top with a bit of chopped parsley and you’ll have the most amazing side dish!  This roasted butternut squash makes the perfect Thanksgiving side dish, complimenting your holiday turkey, stuffing and potatoes.  It will also add some much needed color and texture to an otherwise beige and bland flavor palate.  This sweet and savory side will also be a fantastic addition to your Christmas beef tenderloin, lamb roast or prime rib!

Don’t feel like can only pull this recipe out for the holidays.  I particularly love it for a simple weeknight side dish, paired with a store-bough rotisserie chicken.  It would even be amazing with meatloaf, and pork chops.
