Butternut Cranberry Bake


Need a new recipe for this Thanksgiving? Wow, your guest with this flavorful dish! Best things about this dish is, is that it can be changed to your liking, you can adjust the spices and stevia or even switch out the butternut for pumpkin or sweet potato, if you prefer. Have some fun with this one! Just be sure to give it a good stir after baking, because you want those cranberries to be popped and more of a jelly-like than full, whole berries. So if there are any whole ones left when you pull this out of the oven, just use a spoon to smash them and then stir well. I hope you enjoy this dish for the upcoming holidays! This dish serves 4.
