WHOLE30 ROASTED BUTTERNUT SQUASH
(GLUTEN FREE, GRAIN FREE, DAIRY FREE, PALEO, KETO-FRIENDLY)
Butternut squash has always been one of those foods that I love when it’s prepared correctly; when it’s just plain, I can do without it. This recipe combines the sweetness of roasted butternut squash with the hearty flavors of bacon. The pairing creates a delicious blend of flavors and is sure to be a hit at any holiday gathering or dinner. The best part is that this is a pretty hands-off recipe. Your oven and skillet will do most of the heavy lifting and you’ll be left with a delicious side dish. I have eaten this first thing in the morning, as a side dish with dinner, and topped with chicken for a meal. Enjoy!
