I ran out of frozen mango but I had some roasted squash bacon and kale in the fridge so thought I'd try that combo. It's delicious! I think the slight bite of the greens might balance the sweetness of the squash better anyway -- it was plenty sweet for me without the fruit. I julienned the kale and added it along with some minced garlic after crisping the bacon (and draining all but 2 tbls. of the fat) then added the squash and a dash of white balsamic vinegar. Fantastic side or main dish! Read More

For me this was too sweet. The sweetness of the mango and the sweetness of the butternut needed some heat or some savoriness to offset it. I think the issue is the description on "one butternut squash" The butternut squash I had after paring was close to 2 1/2 pounds of squash.. the description shows this to feed 2 people so I cannot imagine anyone being able to eat a pound and 1/4 of butternut. I didn't even put the full amount of squash in as it seemed like way too much for the amount of bacon. So I will make this again but adjust the squash amount or add more bacon or sausage and some heat Read More

This was delicious! I didn't have thyme or mango but bacon & squash is a great combo. I covered the pan and added a dash of water to help steam the squash during the first half of the cooking. Once it started to soften I took the lid off and let the water evaporate. Squash browned nicely. I paired it with the Simple Slow Roast Chicken recipe (http://allrecipes.com/recipe/simple-slow-roast-chicken/). Read More

Peeling and cubing the squash was a pain but the recipe was very good. I did add some chopped onions for additional flavor. Definitely will make it again! Read More

I'm always pressed for time so I picked up some butternut squash that was already peeled and cubed. I used bacon and thyme but I toasted pecans and added those as well as some spinach instead of the mango because the squash is sweet enough. The pecans added crunch and another layer of nutty flavor. I served this with a drizzle of good olive oil. Yum! Read More

Made it exactly according to the directions and all of us (hubby and two teen daughters) loved it. Had it with plain scrambled eggs on the side. Read More

Not sure how a family full of picky eaters would like this but all of them said they loved it!! I loved how easy it was to make. The only thing I did different was fill the bottom of the pan with bacon (six or seven slices). Great addition to breakfast for dinner meals! Read More
