2 slices bacon, cut into 1-inch pieces

1/3 cup chopped onion

2 tablespoons butter

1 cup (1/2-inch) butternut squash, peeled, seeded and cubed

1/2 cup frozen corn kernels, thawed

2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil leaves, plus more for garnish

1 1/2 teaspoons dry mustard

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper


  1. In a medium skillet, cook the bacon over medium-high heat until crisp. Add the onion, and cook until tender, about 2 minutes. Add 2 tablespoons of butter to the skillet, then add the squash. Cook until browned and tender, stirring occasionally, about 20 to 25 minutes. Add the corn and cook until heated through, about 3 minutes. Stir in the basil, dry mustard, salt, and pepper and cook for 1 minute. Transfer the squash to a serving bowl and garnish with basil. Serve immediately.
