Holy Moly! Thanksgiving is just around the corner and Christmas will be soon after that! It is time to break out all the yummy recipes, like this Honey Roasted Butternut Squash & Cranberries with Feta, and get in the kitchen and cook!
I love cooking and baking all year, but there is something about creating holiday dishes that just brings out the flavors and beauty of each dish like no other time.
We have a lot of traditions in our home when it comes to Thanksgiving dinner, desserts, treats, and even the table!
Some dishes will always be on the table at Thanksgiving, like the turkey, gravy, stuffing, mashed potatoes… But I do like adding in a new side or two each year to twist things up a bit.
When I first served this Honey Roasted Butternut Squash & Cranberries with Feta dish, I got the Oooo’s and Aaahhh’s right away, as it is just beautiful plated on the platter I grabbed from Burkes Outlet.
Speaking of Burkes Outlet… I LOVE shopping there! In case you have never been, this is the perfect time to go and find everything you need for every holiday!
They not only helped me create my gorgeous table this year, but also stocked my kitchen with everything I need for the plethora of holiday dishes I will be creating!
This year I needed, new spatulas, cutting boards, measuring spoons, serving platters, a table runner, and dish towels! I still feel like I got a steal of a deal with everything I bought being such a great deal and great quality.
Okay. Back to the Honey Roasted Butternut Squash & Cranberries.
This recipe is not only gorgeous, but also delicious!
There are two alterations you can play with in this recipe.
1. Use dried cranberries instead of fresh to reduce the tartness of the cranberries.
2. Use more cinnamon if you are a big fan of cinnamon!
The honey helps to counter act the tartness of the cranberries. And the feta brings in a unique texture and flavor with the roasted squash. I love it!
