I’m bringing my easy side dish recipe for Roasted Butternut Squash with Cranberries – it’s sweet, savory and on the lighter side.
Up until a few years ago, I always hosted Thanksgiving dinner. I really never minded making all the dishes since it was just our immediate family. Now our older daughter and her husband have taken over and I have to say, I love just showing up with a couple dishes.
They always put on a great spread and hope they’ll like this new dish I created!
I hope you’ll enjoy the roasted butternut squash with cranberries recipe, too!
- 2 cups cubed butternut squash (about 3/4″)
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup
- Olive oil for drizzling
- 2 cups fresh cranberries
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- Preheat oven to 400
- In a medium bowl toss together the squash, salt, pepper, brown sugar and maple syrup. Mix well and then pour on a rimmed cookie sheet. Drizzle with a bit of olive oil.
- Roast for 25 minutes stirring about every 7-8 minutes.
- Meanwhile toss the cranberries in 1 tablespoon honey and add to the cookie sheet after the 25 minutes and continue to roast for an additional 10-15 (until berries burst and squash is soft) (stir twice during roasting time)
- Remove from oven and toss with the additional tablespoon honey and the cinnamon.
- Serve right away or at room temperature
