Recipe Created By: Chef Luca Della Casa


2 cups cubed acorn squash, blanched
1 1/2 cups cubed red apple
6 slices crispy bacon or Canadian bacon
2 Tbsp butter alternative (like Earth Balance)
3 Tbsp brown sugar
2 Tbsp mint
1 orange, juiced
maple syrup or powdered sugar


Cut the acorn squash in small cubes and blanch it in boiling water for five minutes. Drain and let it cool off.

Put bacon slices on a sheet pan between two parchment papers. Put it in the oven at 320 degrees for about 15 minutes.

Set the bacon aside to cool, then cut into little bites.

In a pan add the butter alternative, cut bacon, brown sugar, and the squash at medium high heat.

Let it cook for about 5 minutes, or until the sugar dissolves. Set aside.

In a bowl, combine the cubed apple, chopped mint, and orange juice. Add the warm squash and bacon and mix. Drizzle it with maple syrup or dust it with confection sugar. Buon appetito!
