When I saw this recipe on the list I was excited to make it as it contains some of my favorite flavors- squash, apples, brown sugar and Brussels sprouts. After last weeks less then stellar recipe, my anticipation grew throughout the week waiting for Friday to arrive. Unfortunately, I spent most of Friday in bed with a migraine so Ari took the helm for this recipe.
The recipe was as easy as could be. I had bought pre-cut squash rather then having to deal with peeling and butchering a whole one. Oddly, the recipe says papillote- which traditionally is parchment paper, but in the directions it says aluminium foil. Ari stuck to the traditional method and used parchment but I am sure either would have been fine.
After filling the four packages, he had some of the vegetables leftover so those were baked separately in a roasting pan. I am so glad there was more than those four packages left! He brought me up a tray with a single package in it and I sent him back for the all the rest!
The squash and apple were soft and tender and Brussels sprouts were sweet with the brown sugar. It was incredibly good and I am happy to say, that this recipe will definitely be made again (& again)!
Sorry, but I cannot share the recipe- but you can (and should!) buy the book and cook along with us. It’s great fun! Every Friday we make a new recipe. And I can’t wait for next weeks! For details and to see how others are recreating the dishes from this awesome book, check out the FFWD site.

Feel better !! Kudos to Ari for jumping in- the results look amazing. I also enjoyed this since I already loved the ingredients and knew any way to prepare them would be a winner. It was still fun to try a new technique- esp one so darn quick and easy. May not re do the exact combo of this week but I am inspired to try this again with other options (or what we are “having a sale on in the fridge”).

I am so sorry to hear about your migraine. Those can be so debilitating and I hope that you are feeling better now. I think Ari did a great job with this recipe and I’m glad that you enjoyed it. Your photos are beautiful. We also enjoyed this one and I roasted some this weekend and actually prefer them fixed this way.
