nutmegananne Posted September 26, 2012 Share Posted September 26, 2012 This is a very yummy side dish. It's simple, but does take some work (mainly peeling and slicing). Basically, take any winter squash you like (or pie pumpkin), peel, scoop out the seeds and strings, and slice into pieces 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. Try to get the slices as uniformly thick as possible. Toss in your fat of choice (olive or coconut oil, lard, melted ghee, etc), and spread in one layer on a cookie sheet. I use a convection oven at 400, so I'd say about 375 in a regular oven. Bake until the pieces are soft on the inside and slightly browning on the outside. I don't usually turn mine at all, but I do check them regularly. I love to season them with a Cajun spice blend, and then drizzle them with a balsamic reduction I have made, but I think they'd also be good with garlic salt, or maybe even "sweeter" spices like nutmeg and cinnamon.
