Thankful for Baked Butternut Squash and Apples

I'm a side dish girl when it comes to holiday dinners. When I go back for seconds, it's always to load up on more from the sides. I like stuffing and mashed potatoes and cranberry sauce. Oh, and dinner rolls smothered in butter. Just gimme all the sides, please and thank you. I usually roast some sweet potatoes, brussle sprouts and dried cranberries as my signature side, but this year instead of the normal roasted sweet potatoes dish, I am going with Baked Butternut Squash and Apples instead. 

Baked Butternut Squash and Apples

When I first saw this recipe on Golden Blossom Honey, I knew it was something that I had to add to my Thanksgiving menu this year. A little sweet with a hit of warmth, this dish is perfect for fall entertaining. The hardest part of putting this together was peeling and chopping the butternut squash (seriously, if you have a technique to make that chore easier, do share!), so if you want to save time or just skip the extra work, I'm sure you could replace fresh butternut squash with frozen without much difference in the final result. If you do go that route, I'd probably reduce boil time down to about 3 minutes instead of 5 so your squash doesn't come out mushy. Serve this up this holiday season and I bet you'll see your guests heading back for seconds, too! 

2 medium butternut squash, peeled, seeded, cut into bite size pieces
5 medium sized Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and cut into 1/4 inch pieces
1 cup dried currants
1/4 cup butter, cut into pieces
1 1/2 Tablespoons lemon juice

Main dish, side dish, or dessert. What's your favorite part of the holiday meal?



  1. Looks gorgeous but sounds nasty :) I don't do sweet with savoury, ewwwww! Every Holiday I'd probably be like 'oh, noes, here comes sister Theresa with her savoury dishes seasoned with cranberriez and apples and raisins and chocolate and muffins in the roasted turkey LOL

    1. Well, we do need to keep things interesting around here ;P

  2. I'm just an eat the same thing and leave person lol not that that is a surprise. I do like apples though, when I could eat them, so it does look good. Not that your pics ever don't look good.

  3. This looks delicious! Unlike Dez, I do like some sweet with my savory. :) Every year we make a butternut squash dish with garlic, butter, and pecorino romano cheese. This may be our replacement this year. I just printed out the recipe!

  4. I never thought to combine apple with squash. It sounds good. I usually make a fancy veggie tray, cheese ball, crackers, and some dessert. I'm going to try and make Pumpkin Cannoli this year.

  5. Estupendo post , es un placer leerte! Que pases un buen dรญa! ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ

  6. I've never been a fan of butter nut squash so I'd pass on this one.

  7. What a delicious recipe! Perfect for the season.

  8. Todo se ve estupendo! ๐Ÿ’Ÿ๐Ÿ’Ÿ๐Ÿ’Ÿ Que tengas una feliz semana! ๐Ÿ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ‚

  9. This sounds way better to me than sweet potatoes. I couldn't leave the SP out though because my grandbaby loves them so much. Butternut squash is one of my faves. I bet I'd like this dish...and yep, the sides are the attention grabber for me too.
