Roasted Butternut Squash and Crispy Sage
With Sahale Snacks® Maple Pecans Glazed MIx
Nothing says ‘Thanksgiving’ like a home-cooked meal. And, one of our favorite side dishes to make this time of year uses a versatile and exceptional fall ingredient—the butternut squash. This easy, modern take on roasted butternut squash will leave everyone thankful they came to your house. With this recipe, the sweet and buttery flavor of the squash is balanced with a hint of sage, dashes of cayenne and cinnamon.
We start off by infusing oil with fresh sage leaves, then roast the squash to bring out the sweet notes of caramel. And the best part? We top off the squash with our perfectly crunchy Sahale Snacks® Maple Pecans Glazed Mix and the crispy sage leaves we saved from our infused oil to create a blend of textures and delicious layers of flavor.
