In combination with brown sugar, slab bacon, an early-American mainstay, forms a sweet-salty-sticky glaze on roasted delicata squashes and lady apples.

I tried to get Delicata squashes everywhere, but everyone was sold out as we got close to Thanksgiving. So I subbed in Butternut squash and followed the rest of the recipe as written. It was totally delicious and I've made it again a few times. I'm so glad to have found this recipe!
