After the turkey’s done, I dial up the oven temp and roast carrots and squash for this yummy side. That frees me up to start the gravy. —Lily Julow, Lawrenceville, Georgia

"This recipe was wonderful served with our Christmas beef tenderloin meal.... the hint of spice and sweetness was just right, and even the young grandkids enjoyed this veggie. I will definitely make these again!"

"This recipe was a very tasty side dish! Since I didn't have a regular butternut squash, I used a 12-oz. package of frozen cooked butternut squash which I cooked in my microwave oven per instructions on the package.

I used 1/2 lb. baby carrots, cut in cross-wise pieces after halving them. I used the same amount of packed brown sugar, olive oil and I just used 1 tsp. kosher salt. I kept the same amount of cinnamon and nutmeg. I'd mixed the squash and carrots together and baked at 400o F. in a square 8" baking pan, sprayed with non-stick cooking spray for 30 minutes, then topped with the 1 cup chopped walnuts and baked 10 minutes longer.
This recipe is definitely a keeper! Thank you, Lily Julow, for sharing your recipe with Taste of Home!

"Made this on a whim this weekend. Paired it with a roasted chicken, and I got rave reviews from my guests about it! It was the perfect side with the savory chicken and stuffing!! Will definitely make again for our Thanksgiving feast! The only thing I changed was that I added a little less sugar and a little less nutmeg. it still was phenomenal!!"
