bacon, cut into 1/4-inch squares
butternut squash, peeled and cubed
mango, peeled and cubed
salt and ground black pepper, to taste
This was delicious! I didn't have thyme or mango but bacon & squash is a great combo. I covered the pan and added a dash of water to help steam the squash during the first half of the cooking. Once it started to soften I took the lid off and let the water evaporate. Squash browned nicely. I paired it with the Simple Slow Roast Chicken recipe (http://allrecipes.com/recipe/simple-slow-roast-chicken/).
For me this was too sweet. The sweetness of the mango and the sweetness of the butternut needed some heat or some savoriness to offset it. I think the issue is the description on "one butternut squash" The butternut squash I had , after paring was close to 2 1/2 pounds of squash.. the description shows this to feed 2 people so I cannot imagine anyone being able to eat a pound and 1/4 of butternut. I didn't even put the full amount of squash in as it seemed like way too much for the amount of bacon.
So I will make this again, but adjust the squash amount or add more bacon or sausage and some heat
I ran out of frozen mango, but I had some roasted squash, bacon and kale in the fridge so thought I'd try that combo. It's delicious! I think the slight bite of the greens might balance the sweetness of the squash better, anyway -- it was plenty sweet for me without the fruit. I julienned the kale and added it along with some minced garlic after crisping the bacon (and draining all but 2 tbls. of the fat), then added the squash and a dash of white balsamic vinegar. Fantastic side or main dish!
Pretty good, Me being a bacon lover would do a couple more strips of bacon and maybe add some chopped onion as well, otherwise I'm sure I'll be doing this again.
I thought this was too sweet with eggs, but a perfect replacement for the dried fruit stuffing I normally pair my goose with at Christmas. I also added a bit of onion as suggested by a few others.
Made it exactly according to the directions and all of us (hubby and two teen daughters) loved it. Had it with plain scrambled eggs on the side.
The thyme didn't seem to fit well. Next time I will try some other herbs.
I tried what other reviewers suggested and added some water to soften the squash. It ended up getting mushy, and never crisped up. Maybe giving it a quick zap in the microwave instead would help?
This isn't a good meal for making leftovers.
Peeling and cubing the squash was a pain, but the recipe was very good. I did add some chopped onions for additional flavor. Definitely will make it again!
