Leftover Turkey with Delicata Squash

by brenda on November 19, 2011

I mentioned to you all how much I LOVE Delicata squash. YUM. That is what inspired me to make this lovely dish! I highly recommend making this the day after Thanskgiving with your leftover turkey! If you want more ideas, don’t forget about my Thanksgiving Leftovers book. It’s inexpensive and has some great recipes for soups, sandwiches and salads that are all GAPS legal. Anyways, let’s get on with the recipe!

Leftover Turkey with Delicata Squash

2 Delicata squash

1 sm sweet onion, diced

3 cleftover turkey or chicken

3 med  apples, chopped

1 c  fresh cranberries

2 tsp  cinnamon

1 tsp   sea salt

1/2 tsp  nutmeg

1/2 c   butter or ghee, plus extra for greasing the pan (where to buy ghee)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a large baking dish with butter or ghee. Cut squash in half and scoop out the seeds. Slice into half rings and place in a large bowl.
