Butternut squash with crispy bacon 20 ounces of chopped butternut squash 2 apples of choice chopped 1 large onion chopped into small pieces 6 large carrots chopped 2-4 sweet potatoes chopped (depending on size)Evoo Chicken stock cayenne pepper, salt and pepper to taste Bacon 1 pound Depending on time I will prepare the seasoned veggies, salt, pepper and cayenne, either by putting them in the oven to roast for 40 minute on 425 or put them directly in a crockpot on high for 4 hours. If I roast I will still take the veggies and put them in a crockpot on high for 4 hours. Roasting the veggies first gives it a nice smokey flavor. Just before serving I will take the immersion blender and blend the vegetables smooth. Use the chicken stock to even out the thickness of the vegetables. Meanwhile…..bake up so nice bacon to serve alongside. Other side options are homemade breaded chicken tenders or grilled cheese.
