Beau Monde blend is a throw back spice mixture, and we love that it's made a come back. Like your fall wardrobe, outfit your pantry with Beau Monde. Use this rich, earthy blend to bring cozy fall flavor to just about anything--like this acorn squash. Legend has it that Ernest Hemingway used Beau Monde in his hamburgers. Now that's rich!
1 acorn squash, seeded and sliced into 6-8 wedges
1/2 oz Beau Monde Blend
1 tsp salt
1 Tbl butter
1 Tbl brown sugar
1/4 cup pecans
1/4 cup dried cranberries
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Sprinkle the acorn squash wedges with Beau Monde Blend. Roast in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until a knife pierces the squash easily. While the squash is baking, heat a saute pan over medium heat. Add the butter, brown sugar, pecans and cranberries. Once the butter and brown sugar melts, saute until fragrant and the brown sugar becomes thick and syrupy. Place the squash wedges in a serving bowl and pour the sugar-nut-cranberry mixture over the top. Serve immediately.
