Foodservice Recipe


  • 2 cups butternut squash
  • 1 apple
  • 6 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 tbsp salt
  • 1 tbsp pepper
  • 3 tsp sage, chopped
  • 2 tbsp thyme, chopped
  • 8 oz Hungry Planet Italian Sausage™Buy Now
  • 2/3 cup red onion, sliced
  • 3 cups crutons
  • 2 tbsp golden raisins
  • 1 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp parsley


  • Step 1.

    Heat oven to 400°F. Line a tray with foil and drizzle half of olive oil to prevent sticking. Arrange the squash and drizzle with more olive oil, salt, and pepper. Cook for about 10 minutes before adding the apples, sage and thyme and a drizzle more olive oil. Allow squash and apples to cook without becoming completely mushy (about 20-30 minutes depending on sizes). Remove from oven when done and set aside.

  • Step 2.

    Heat oil over high heat. Add sliced onion. When translucent, add Hungry Planet Italian Sausage™, breaking apart into small chunks while allowing to sear (3-4 minutes). Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.

  • Step 3.

    Heat oven to 375°F. Mix together butternut and apple, Hungry Planet Italian Sausage™, croutons, and golden raisins in a heat proof serving dish. Pour apple cider vinegar over the mixture. Cover with foil, bake for 7 minutes. Remove foil and let toast slightly (about 3 minutes).

  • Step 4.

    Garnish with parsley. Serve warm.
