Roasted Cinnamon Honey Delicata Squash

With the Thanksgiving holiday coming up, I thought I’d share with you a yummy and seasonal recipe! Delicata squash is my favorite squash variety, so of course I had to come up with a recipe! This is a side dish that I’ll definitely be making for Thanksgiving this year. It has the perfect amount of cinnamon with a touch of sweetness from the honey. I absolutely LOVE cinnamon, so you can expect to really get a cinnamon flavor. What’s great about this recipe is that you can scale the sweetness and cinnamon intensity to your preference! Every time I make this, I usually never measure. I just taste as I go and add more or less of whatever ingredient until I am happy with the flavor! You only need a total of 4 ingredients for this recipe! It’s so easy to put together and would be a great addition to any Thanksgiving meal.
