- 1 whole medium butternut
- 250g streaky bacon
- olive oil, for drizzling
- sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Preheat the oven to 200°C.
Cut butternut into quarters, lengthways.
Wrap each piece of butternut with 4 – 5 strips of bacon, making sure that the bacon strips overlap and that the ends are tucked underneath to avoid the bacon unravelling during roasting.
Place the wrapped butternut wedges on a greased roasting tray and drizzle with olive oil. Season well with salt and pepper, and place in the preheated oven to roast until golden brown and soft, 25 – 30 minutes.
