Apples and butternut squash and thyme, oh my! All the makings of a nice holiday dish, right? I am in love with this 21 Day Fix Apple Butternut Squash Casserole. It has everything a good side dish needs…like squash, pecans, and bacon (ok, turkey bacon to keep it 21 Day Fix-compliant…but you non-Fixers can use regular bacon if you’d like!).

You’re going to love this as a side dish for your holiday meal! It doesn’t require a holiday, though. It goes great with any protein – and leftovers are fantastic on a salad!

And can we just talk about the bacon for a second? This recipe uses turkey bacon, which, let’s face it, is not the same as regular bacon. But it gets kind of caramelized and crispy and you will love it – without having to “cheat” on the plan.

Also, I love all the seasonings that go into this – thyme and sage and cinnamon and cloves…so holiday-ish!

Prep time: 20 minutes

Cook time: 40-45 minutes

  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 3 cups butternut squash, cubed
  • 2 medium firm apples, cubed

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh sage, chopped
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 farenheit. Spray a 9×13 baking dish with non-stick spray.

In the baking dish, combine the butternut squash, apples, red onion, 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil, sage, and thyme. Toss or combine. Spread in an even layer and roast until squash is fork tender, about 25-30 minutes. Toss halfway through.

While squash is roasting, heat a large non-stick skillet over medium heat and add bacon. Non-stick spray can be used if needed. Add bacon and cook until bacon is crispy. Place in small mixing bowl and cool. When cooled, add chopped pecan and spices.

Melt the remaining tablespoon of coconut oil with the honey. Add to bacon mixture and toss to coat.

Remove squash from oven when tender and top with the bacon pecan mixture. Return to the oven until the topping is nicely browned, approximately 10 minutes. Remove from oven and cool for 5 minutes before serving.

Scrolled through twice., and don’t see it. Maybe it’s because I’m on my phone?

Thank you for the good and delicious recipe! Your Squash is a very tasty dish. Especially now – it is very nourishing and warming. I recommend eating it for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
