- 1/2 pound brussels sprouts, quartered
- 1/2 pound butternut squash, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch dice
- 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 1/4 pound thickly sliced bacon, cut into 1/4-inch dice
- 1/2 pound sweet onions such as Vidalia or Texas sweets, finely chopped
- 1 small Granny Smith applepeeled, cored and cut into 1/4-inch dice
- 10 sage leaves, thinly sliced crosswise
- 1 cup apple cider
- Preheat the oven to 400°. On a large rimmed baking sheet, toss the brussels sprouts and squash with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast the vegetables for about 20 minutes, or until tender.
- In a large, deep skillet, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Add the bacon and cook over moderate heat until crisp, about 5 minutes. Add the onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned, about 10 minutes. Stir in the apple and cook until it starts to soften, about 2 minutes. Gently stir in the roasted brussels sprouts, squash and sage, then pour in the cider. Simmer over moderately high heat until the cider has almost evaporated, about 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer the vegetables to a bowl and serve.
The vegetable hash can be refrigerated overnight.
