Food: Party Prep – You Had Me at…Honey Roasted Acorn

I try to change it up every year, in terms of side dishes or even a starter when I am hosting a get-together for the holidays – in the U.S. meaning to clarify – Thanksgiving or a party between the holidays. So, this amazing dish with honey butter roasted acorn, burrata and pomegranate made it on my menu for Thanksgiving:

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 acorn squash, seeded and cut into wedges
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons honey, plus more for drizzling
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/2-1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes, to taste
  • kosher salt and pepper
  • 2-3 balls burrata cheese
  • extra virgin olive oil, for drizzling
  • 4 fresh sage leaves, chopped
  • 1/2 cup roasted, salted hazelnuts, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup pomegranate arils
