Butternut Baked “Beans”

We have not stopped eating this stuff since last Friday.  For real.  Tastes like the real thing, I swear.  All that without the talking dog.


Again, I have to blame this on my mid-winter barbecue kick.  I mean, really, what is up with that??  Then again, it’s been the initiation of a few truly spectacular recipes already, so I guess I can’t complain.  All while cutting out sugar, to boot.  I know, right?!

This recipe calls for my amazeballs BBQ Sauce…recipe can be found here!
