Martins Butternut and Apple Bake

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Karen Elizabeth

I first had this dish at a function, I loved it, and the chef kindly gave me the recipe. He wasn't specific on quantities so I had to guess a bit when I made it, and I didn't feel mine was as nice as his, so feel free to play a little and adjust to your own taste!

Our kind of food! This took longer to cook than 50 minutes so next time I would increase temperature. Wonder if butternut squash is different in other parts of world? Mine was in oven over an hour and still underdone but we were starving. Cut squash into 1/4 inch slices and also put the squash in oven fifteen minutes before adding rest of ingredients. Cut apple a bit thicker. I used half the cream but it disappeared into juice from apple. Doubled garlic. Made for my Spring PAC 2014 baby.
