Recipe: Maple-Glazed Butternut Squash and Apples

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 tablespoons apple butter, optional (see last paragraph)
  • 3/4 cup maple syrup, plus more as needed for basting
  • 1/4 cup apple cider
  • 2-3# (1 large) butternut squash, peeled, halved lengthwise, seeded and cut crosswise into 1/4-inch thick slices
  • 3 medium-sized tart apples, peeled, halved, cored and cut into 1/4-inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons dried cranberries

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400˚. Oil a medium-sized (13"X9") baking dish.
  2. Combine butter, apple butter, 3/4 cup of maple syrup and apple cider in a saucepan over medium-low heat until mixture melts, stirring. Increase heat and boil until mixture is slightly reduced, about 5 minutes.
  3. Arrange 1/3 of squash slices in prepared baking dish. Top with half of apple slices, then 1/3 squash slices. Arrange remaining slices of squash and apple on top, alternating squash and apple slices. Season top with freshly ground pepper. If using unsalted butter, lightly season with kosher salt.
  4. Pour maple syrup mixture over casserole and cover tightly with foil. Bake casserole until squash in just fork-tender, about 45 minutes. Turn broiler on and broil an additional 1-2 minutes until top is golden brown.
  5. Sprinkle with cranberries and serve, spooning juices over vegetables.
