Opinions vary as to which is the best part of this eye-catching Thanksgiving side dish. Is it the tasty, caramelized edges, or the intriguing visual appearance that makes this side dish pretty enough to be a Thanksgiving centerpiece? Or is the best part simply a practical one – the fact that this recipe can be on the table in under an hour? Quick, pretty, and delicious, this easy Butternut squash recipe uses a short ingredient list (you probably already have everything you need) to accent the natural sweetness of roasted Butternut squash, a favorite winter squash. There are several varieties of winter squash available in the South, including Spaghetti, Acorn, Butternut, and Kabocha, which is a good thing since few vegetables can match winter squash for nutrition, especially when it comes to vitamin A content. The Skillet Squash Blossom is fresh and flavorful; you won't miss the heavy cheese sauces that usually accompany the summer squash casseroles. Save those calories for an after-dinner treat, and choose from our selection of more than splurge-worthy Thanksgiving desserts, from silky cheesecakes, syrupy pecan pies, traditional pound cakes and reputation-making mile-high layer cakes.
