Sometimes there’s nothing better than a warm roasted-squash dish to kick-start the holiday season. A festive alternative to traditional acorn squash is Gold Nugget squash. These popular winter squash have bright orange skins and look like small pumpkins. Their sweet, buttery flesh roasts to a wonderfully soft texture. Paired with apples, brown sugar, and pecans, this side dish is always a hit at our fall and winter gatherings. If you can’t locate Gold Nuggets, acorn squash will work beautifully as well.
