    Buster's friend's Note:

    This looks like a yum Thanksgiving side - especially since the grains are so tasty. Biggest thing is to steam the millet tender, adding more liquid if needed after the first 45 minutes coking beneath the aluminum foil cover. Easily vegetarian with veggie stock instead of chicken stock & even vegan with more stock instead of 1/2 & 1/2. Adapted from Mark Bittman's Autumn Millet Bake Recipe.

    • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
    • 2/3 cup chicken stock (or vegetable)
    • 2/3 cup cream (1/2 & 1/2)
    • 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds (or coarsely chopped hazelnuts)

    Directions:

      Peel and cube squash into 1 inch cubes.
    2. 2
      Preheat the oven to 375°F

      Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a small skillet over medium-high heat. Add millet & stir for 3 minutes. until millet is golden. Pour millet into greased baking dish.

    7. 7
      Sprinkle with salt and pepper and sage. Drizzle with syrup.

      Carefully uncover and turn the oven to 400°F.
    11. 11
      Add more stock or 1/2 & 1/2 if the millet is not tender. Recover with foil if more liquid is needed to complete millet cooking. Check in 15 minutes. If millet is tender, remove foil & proceed. If not add liquid as needed & recover for an additional 10 minutes, then recheck.
