{Katie’s Kitchen} Roasted Brussel Sprouts and Cinnamon Butternut Squash

Brought to you by Catoctin Mountain Orchard

I made this dish for our Thanksgiving dinner and it was a huge hit!!  With the holiday season in full swing this is definitely an excellent addition to any meal…and it’s easy!

Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees. Toss your brussel sprouts in olive oil and salt and cook for 20 minutes on a pan in the oven.

Toss your cubed butternut squash in olive oil, maple syrup, and cinnamon, then roast for about 20 minutes or until fork tender.

Then, in a large bowl combine your brussel sprouts and squash along with dried cranberries and your lightly toasted pecans.

For pecans, I roasted them with butter and brown sugar…yum!

Add a little bit more maple syrup, if needed and toss everything!

Ingredients: I got the recipe here!!!

  • 3 cups Brussels sprouts ends trimmed, yellow leaves removed
