    Ingredients
    • 2 medium butternut squashes peeled and cubed
    • 6 slices of cooked bacon chopped
    • 1/3 cup dried cranberries
    • 1/3 cup pecans chopped
    • 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    • salt and black pepper
    • 1/4 cup maple syrup
    Instructions
    1. Spread cubed butternut squash on 2 foil-lined baking sheets. Drizzle some olive oil, season with salt and pepper, and stir the squash. Bake in a preheated 400 F oven for about 30 minutes, or until squash is tender when pierced with a fork. Halfway through, stir and turn butternut squash so it doesn't burn.

    2. When done, place in a large casserole dish, sprinkle with some cranberries, chopped pecans, and bacon, and stir. Drizzle with some maple syrup, and serve warm.
