Paleo & Whole30 Bacon Wrapped Butternut Squash

29 Jan

Have no fear an easy, delicious super bowl treat is here!  People doing the Whole30 challenge or eating strict paleo are probably starting to wonder: what will I do for super bowl snacks?!  This one is super simple and really yummy.  Why am I wrapping butternut squash in bacon?  Because I hate scallops.  Hate.  So what else might go well wrapped in bacon?  Well, everything I guess 🙂  But I was looking for something that would be a little sweet and cook soft to compliment the salty crisp bacon.  Experiment success!

Ingredients:

20 oz Butternut squash – I totally cheated and bought a package of precut cubes!  Saves a lot of time!  If you buy a whole squash, peel it, deseed it, and cut it into 1-2 inch cubes.

20-24 oz. uncured nitrate free no sugar added bacon

Olive oil

Kosher or sea salt

Pepper

Toothpicks

Method:

Preheat oven to 400°F.  Toss the butternut squash with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.  Wrap each cube of butternut squash with half a piece of bacon and secure with a toothpick.  Place on a baking sheet lined with foil and bake at 400°F for 25 minutes, until bacon is crisp.
