Orange Glazed Green Beans and Butternut Squash

Citrus is a great compliment to ham but instead of glazing your ham, glaze your green beans and butternut squash in this festive side dish.

Orange Glazed Green Beans and Butternut Squash 1

Lesson learned: get a flu shot every year. This year was the first in 8 that I did not get a flu shot, mainly because I couldn’t get it for free anymore (oh how I miss the perks of being a student), and sure enough the flu found me on Christmas Eve of all days. I’ve been slowly recovering since with my biggest achievement coming in the form of a shower. Hooray cleanliness!


Before I realized what my sniffles were leading up to, I did help cook dinner on Christmas Eve for my parents (thankfully they had already passed the illness, likely to me). The menu consisted of smoked country ham from Benton’s, my dad’s homemade applesauce, cheddar biscuits, rosemary mac and cheese, and orange glazed green beans and butternut squash. I often pair ham with a citrus glaze but since we went with a smoked ham this year the citrus element went into the side dish instead. And it was the favorite part of the meal.
