Recipe by Outta Here

A nice fall side dish. Goes well with pork or turkey. For a variation, substitute pears for the apples.

Simple, quick, and yummy! I'll probably only make this in the fall when apples & squash are in season... Also, be careful to sample the squash before serving and make sure they're well-enough cooked -- first time I made this some were still hard after an hour and I needed to remove the casserole dish from our table with guests (oops) & stick it back in the oven.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 butternut squash, peeled, seeded and cut into chunks
  • 3 medium apples, cored, peeled and sliced (I use Granny Smiths)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 34 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 12 cup apple juice (I use no sugar added juice)


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Coat the inside of a 1-quart casserole dish with cooking spray.
  3. Combine squash and apples with lemon juice and cinnamon in a large bowl. Toss to coat well. Place in casserole.
  4. Sprinkle with brown sugar. Pour apple juice over mixture.
  5. Cover casserole with lid or foil and bake 1 hour, or until squash is tender.
