Bacon Wrapped Little Smokies with Butternut Squash

 

Little smokies, bacon, and butternut squash all taste yummy with a brown sugar glaze.  Great on a skewer but not necessary.  It’s  best to cook it all in a deep pan or a 9 x 13 casserole dish, then serve on a platter with dipping sauce, or skewer them after cooked.  It’s kind of dangerous and hard to skewer the raw squash but possible. I only stabbed myself twice on the first batch.  The smokies and squash also get coated with the glaze a lot better if cooked in a deep pan or casserole dish rather then on the skewers.  Less flipping and basting as well.

I hope you try this for your next party and game.  They do taste great together. It covers the sweet, salty, meaty flavors plus you get your veggies ( I think squash is technically a fruit) and there’s bacon so what else do you need.
