Barbecue Bacon Butternut Bites


  • Total Time: 35 minutes

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1.5 pounds butternut squash, cut into large bite-sized chunks (about 3 cups squash)
  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 4 slices bacon, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 3 scallions, sliced

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 450F and prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a bowl, toss the butternut squash with the olive oil and all of the spices. Arrange the squash on the baking sheet in an even layer. Roast the squash for 20-30 minutes, stirring once halfway through, until the squash is browned at the edges and soft in the center.
  3. While the squash is roasting, cook the bacon pieces in a skillet over medium-high heat until chewy but not crispy. Drain on paper towels.
  4. When the squash and bacon are cooked, use toothpicks to connect 1 piece of squash and 1 piece of bacon. Arrange on a plate for serving and sprinkle with the scallions. Serve warm or at room temperature.
  5. Enjoy!
