Festive Fall Baked Butternut Squash & Apples

baked butternut squash & apples

Fall calls for food that is festive, colorful & warms the soul. This festive Baked Butternut Squash & Apples dish is inspired by the season & the apples I got from my trip to Soergel’s Orchard.

BONUS this recipe is super simple and straightforward AND fills your home with a delicious scent while it bakes.

Gather 1 or 2 ripe butternut squash, your choice of apples (here’s a guide for baking with apples) 1/2 stick of butter, your preferred amount of brown sugar, cinnamon & allspice, plus any other of your favorite seasonal spices.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Carefully slice the  butternut squash in half, seed and clean the pit. Place halves on a large baking sheet flesh side up.
Peel and chop apples into 1 inch square sized pieces.
In a bowl combine melted butter, brown sugar, spices and chopped apples.
Place mixture in the middle of each squash.
Season with salt and black pepper.
Roast 50 to 60 minutes, until flesh is fork-tender.

Sit back & enjoy the aroma!
