Butternut Squash and Apples in the Camp Dutch Oven

Ready to Bake

Ready to Eat
The Dutch Oven club that we belong to, had a cookout today.  The weather was cold but not raining or snowing.  I looked for a recipe to make with some of the Butternut Squash that I grew last summer. I found this one that won a Scouting Grand Prize in 1990. I thought that it must be really good...a winner! It can be made at home in your oven too. Simple to make, and delicious. The good thing about this recipe is can it can be adjusted to feed a few or or a crowd.  Here is the recipe for 4 people as a side dish.

1 medium Butternut Squash, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch slices.
4 apples, cored and cut into slices. Put into oven safe casserole, or dutch oven with lids.

Then add these things mixed together, over the top.
1/2 stick melted butter
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 T flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon or nutmeg (I like cinnamon better, so I used it.)

Bake at 350 for about 45 minutes, covered.
