Roasted Acorn Squash & Brussels Sprouts
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 30 min.
We roast alot of vegetables in this house, but I've never tried this combination and it's a winner! We love brussels sprouts and we love acorn squash, so when I saw this I knew I had to try it. This dish is SO delicious and will show up often on our table. I didn't have any pecans so I omitted them, but will be sure to add them next time.....which will be very soon! Wonderful side dish for any occasion!
Rarely do I make a new recipe for the Thanksgiving Holiday Dinner Table, but when I saw this recipe, I knew it would be a winner, and my guests raved. I doubled the recipe for the 14 guests. And to make cutting the squash much easier, I put them into the microwave for ten minutes. I substituted small pieces of walnut for the pecans, which worked just as well. Due to lack of oven space, I roasted this the day before, then using a large electric skillet on the buffet table, reheated the mixture, adding 1/2 cup apple juice to prevent drying out. My guests want me to make this a regular at our holiday table. Thanks, Angela!
Easy and delicious! This deserves to be a fall regular. I used butternut instead of acorn squash.
