Our family enjoys this recipe with chicken or ham. But sometimes we'll make a meal of it with warm bread and butter.

"Yum, yum, yum....the Cider-Roasted Squash recipe is delicious. I used sliced leeks instead of onion because I "discovered" them in the bag with the squash in the vegetable drawer. I was skeptical at first that the 2 tablespoons of cider would impart an apple taste, but it was there in the finished dish. I'd say that you should check the doneness of the squash on each "turning interval". Mine cooked in under 30 minutes. Will definitely put this in my favorites folder."

"This is a wonderful way to use butternut squash! My husband said, "I would eat that again" - a high compliment to a recipe!"

"Wasn't sure what Butternut Squash would taste like, but am trying new foods. The butternut squash that I bought and already peeled and diced. A 32 oz. refrigerated pkg. from Sams Club. I didn't have apple cider so I used apple juice and added 1/2 tea. of cinnamon. Also added one peeled and diced apple. Everything else was the same as recipe. This was good and easy. Would make this again."
