Roasted Delicata Squashes and Apples

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 delicata squashes (1 1/2 pounds total), cut crosswise into 1/2-inch slices, seeds removed
  • 4-5 apples (1 1/2 pounds), cored and cut into quarters
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup plus 3 tablespoons light-brown sugar
  • 6 ounces slab bacon, cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices, then cut crosswise into lardons (1/2 inch wide)
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Toss together squashes, apples, oil, sugar, bacon, and 1/2 teaspoon salt; season with pepper. Spread on a rimmed baking sheet, and roast until golden on bottom, about 50 minutes. Flip squashes and apples over, and roast until tender, about 5 minutes more. Sprinkle thyme over mixture, and serve immediately.
