Butternut Squash and Potato Gratin with Braised Brussel Sprouts and Bacon
Is there anything not good about bacon?
I’ve even put it on ice cream.
Actually, there might be a few things, and I have to share them – I just ran across these lately:
And there’s a waiting list. WTF are these mothers thinking? Your newborn does not give a shit if their formula tastes like bacon.
Have you considered the fact that THEY DON’T EVEN KNOW BACON YET.
Is it just me or doesn’t that kinda defeat the purpose of gum?
Jesus H. Ok, back to the food.
Have you been looking for holiday recipes? Me, not so much. I know, it’s almost November and I need to get my ass in gear but I’m so not feeling it. Right now, I’m hanging on to what little shorts-and-tshirt weather we have (it’s 70 degrees as I’m writing this).
One thing I do like about fall is the abundance of winter squashes – I love butternut squash. If you’ve never made mac and cheese with it, you should try it out. Oh, and here’s a butternut squash ravioli I make that’s really good. That reminded me that I’m so glad I discovered that food photography needs some natural light.
Anyway, this is a great little side dish for Thanksgiving or a little fall dinner party – the squash, potatoes, brussel sprouts and bacon make such a good combination. Not to mention the balsamic vinegar.
