  • 1-2 T olive oil
  • 1 butternut squash, peeled and cubed
  • 2 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 apple, cut in medium chunks
  • 1 onion, cut in medium chunks
  • 1 t chili powder
  • 1/8 to 1/4 t cayenne

  • pepper
  • 1/2 t smoked paprika
  • 1/2 t sweet paprika
  • Reduced balsamic vinegar (top with)
  • Greek yogurt (for serving)
  • Caramelized onion cheddar cheese (opt.)
  • 1 C spinach

  1. Toss squash with olive oil and seasonings. Bake at 350F for 30-60 minutes (test at 30 minutes by piercing with a fork to see if it’s done). At 30 minutes in, add apple and onion. Roast until all are soft inside and slightly crispy on the outside.
  2. While squash cooks, bring balsamic vinegar to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook until thickened and syrupy.
  3. Cook bacon. Place cooked bacon on paper towel to drain. Crumble when cooled. Remove some or all grease from hot pan, and wilt spinach. Add nutmeg.
  4. Mix all above ingredients. Top with reduced balsamic vinegar and yogurt.
