If you're not a fan of the ubiquitous Thanksgiving marshmallow and yam casserole or if you're just looking for a simpler way to add that expected sweet side dish, then try this simple and delicious recipe. This is our house standard side dish next to the mash and gravy and the only one that never has any leftovers! Enjoy!
2 lb. Butternut squash, peeled and cut into bite size pieces
2 Tablespoons olive oil
3 Tablespoons maple syrup, divided
Salt and pepper to taste
1 Tablespoon chopped chives (optional)
Spoon into a serving dish, top with a handful of chives, if desired, and drizzle with the remaining tablespoon of maple syrup. Makes approximately 4 - 6 servings.
