Garden Recipes: Easy harvest meal – Butternut Squash, Apples & Porkloin

A Garden Recipe Idea from
Made this last night – so easy & turned out very tasty!  (Butternut squash is pretty easy to grow and very prolific.)

Butternut Squash, Apples & Pork Loin Recipe

Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F).

Prepare (raw) butternut squash – cut in half, scoop out seeds and discard.  Cut the squash into bite-sized pieces.  Place in bottom of very lightly oiled roasting pan.

Core apples (I used ratio of 2 apples to 1 squash).  Chop into chunks about 1/2 the size of the squash.  Place on top of the squash in the pan.

Chop one sweet onion (like vidalia) finely.  Spread out over layer of apples.

Place pork loin on top.  Season pork loin to taste (ex.  lemon pepper, parsley, thyme, sea salt).

Cover and bake until pork loin measures an internal temperature of 160 degrees (F).  (time to cook varies depending upon the size of the loin.)

Slice meat & serve over the vegetable mixture.  Nice with side of cranberry sauce, and fresh rolls.
