Saute

Ingredients

1
butternut squash - peeled and julienne
olive oil
or bacon grease ( what i use) - more as needed
red
onion, minced
1 Tbsp
maple syrup or brown sugar or to taste
kosher
salt & pepper to taste
4 slice
crisp bacon crumbled - optional - i didn't use this time

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Peel your squash with a knife or potato peeler. Cut in half and take out the seeds - (can save and roast them if you like). I used my mandolin to julienne or can use food processor. Have also used a grater.
2
In a large skillet -Pour enough oil or bacon grease into skillet to coat the bottom of the pan. Heat oil to hot but not smoking. Add the onions, and cook roughly 3 minutes, stirring occasional.

Now, add the squash tossing a time or two and allow to cook for a couple of minutes or until the bottom starts to brown. Continue cooking until cooked through and somewhat caramelized.
3
Add in the brown sugar or syrup - Flip and stir and repeat until all of the squash is lightly browned and a little crispy. Sprinkle with salt, pepper. If using bacon, add now and serve immediately. These go great with eggs or great as a side dish with basically any meat entree.
