THE ULTIMATE SIDE DISH FOR THANKSGIVING- BUTTERNUT SQUASH AND SAGE BAKE

DSCN9061I can’t image a week without eating butternut squash or pumpkin during the fall.  These are inexpensive at this time of the year, easy to cook, and delicious.  This recipe is one of my favourites.

This bake can be served with beef, chicken, pork, turkey and kangaroo … yes, kangaroo!!!

INGREDIENTS

1 medium size butternut squash

2 cups of cream

10 sage leaves

salt to taste

METHOD

1- Peel the butternut squash and cut into 1 inch cubes.

2- Put the butternut squash pieces in a baking dish then add the sage leaves and salt.  Mix well with your hands.

3- Add the cream.  Make sure the cream almost covers the butternut squash. Add more cream if it is needed.

4- Bake uncovered at 180C for 20 to 30 minutes or until the squash is just tender.

TIPS

– Check the bake after 20 minutes.  Butternut squash cooks very quickly.

– If you are counting the calories low fat cream can also be used.
