    I actually made this in a skillet and added some ground beef just before it was done. Simply divine!!!

    Delicious but definitely sweet so it’s good to pair it with a more neutral meal so you don’t have too many contrasting flavors

    Turned our great and was very simple! I should've left it in a bit longer for the bigger pieces but I was impatient!

    Simple, quick, flavorful without being overly sweet. It's kinda like a popcorn substitute!

    Pretty yummy & great for the holidays
    The spiciness from the cayenne is subtle and more of an aftertaste. It's an interesting way of preparing butternut squash, but I prefer a sweeter version with nutmeg, ginger, etc.
