Sweet Potato Side Dish Recipe

So the past couple of weeks I have been experimenting with different side dishes to make for the holiday season. Partly because, well, a couple of you guys and gals requested it, but also because its just fun to come up with new dishes to surprise people with at the dinner table. Ya know, get out of the traditional mashed potatoes, green beans, and rolls.

At thanksgiving our family LOVES sweet potatoes, and I mean loves it. My dad and I use to fight over who got the last bit of the sweet potato casserole every year. {that recipe is coming next week! :)}

This week I made a Sweet Potato & Butternut Squash Hash with a Honey Cinnamon Butter, and believe me it is every bit as good as it sounds. The vegetables are roasted in the oven until the center is just soft while the exterior remains crunchy, then it is topped off with a slightly sweet and spiced Honey Cinnamon Butter. {licking my lips}

To be honest, I love my moms Sweet Potato Casserole but this Sweet Potato & Butternut Squash Hash might just be on the Thanksgiving menu instead of the casserole. Sorry mom! Its totally the perfect holiday side, super easy and can be made the day before! Plus, its DE-LISH! Bonus and Bonus! Bon Appetite!

How to Make Sweet Potato & Butternut Squash Hash

To get started, chop up 3 cups of butternut squash into small dices {approximately half of a regular butternut squash} and 3 cups of sweet potatoes into small dices. {approximately 1 large sweet potato}.

    This recipe was AMAZING, thank you thank you!! I purchased bags of pre-cut butternut squash and sweet potato from Trader Joe’s so I literally just threw everything onto two baking sheets, added the rest of the ingredients and threw it into the oven. It came out like PERFECTION. The butter made all the difference. I was going to make sweet potato pie for Thanksgiving but will definitely be making this instead. I plan to enjoy the leftovers for days to come!
