Butternut Squash with Apples and Bacon

Butternut Squash is the star in this wonderful Autumn dish. Paired with sweet apples, and smoky bacon it is sure to be a hit on your holiday table!

If you are assigned a side dish this Thanksgiving, consider bringing this one. It is easy to make and so delicious! An old classic recipe with a few of my tweaks to just put it over the top. I added in the crumbled bacon and the chopped pecans to the recipe, and I can not imagine making it without them.

Besides a holiday meal, I also like to add in some sliced kielbasa once in a while to make it a one dish autumn dinner that my husband loves!
