Butternut Squash and Apple Casserole Recipe

Guest post by Sue at My Party of 6.

This is my absolute FAVORITE autumn dish. It is very easy to make, and yet, everyone RAVES about it and begs for the recipe. It has been a hit everywhere I’ve taken it, including Thanksgiving dinner last year.

You will need:

1 butternut squash
2 apples – whatever variety you like
1/3 cup of brown sugar, packed
3 Tablespoons of cold butter
1 Tablespoon of flour
1 teaspoon of salt
1/4 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon of ground nutmeg

First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Then, slice the squash in half, scoop and discard the seeds, peel and dice it. (If you are going to be in a rush, you can also buy the already prepared chunks in your produce section.)

Combine the remaining ingredients and sprinkle on top of apple, squash and butter.
