Baked Butternut Squash and Apples

This is another great fall side dish--and it's a great introduction to butternut squash because this dish is slightly sweet. Kids and adults love it.


  • 1 1/2 lbs. butternut squash
  • 1/4 c. melted butter
  • 1 tbsp. flour
  • 4 apples
  • 1/2 c. brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. mace
Cut squash in 1/2 inch slices and peel (I peeled mine first; the "neck" of the squash gives the best circles). Peel and core apples and slice as for pie. Arrange squash in ungreased baking dish. Top with apples. Then add the brown sugar, flour, and mace, which you have mixed together, and pour the melted butter on top. Cover and bake 1 hour at 350 degrees. This recipes fills a 2 quart casserole dish.

Serves 8.

Link away! I'm going to do a bit about seasonal muffins next week and am planning to link back to your pumpkin chocolate chip muffins! (I'm going to take those to my women's Bible study tomorrow)
