3 cups Niedlov’s Breadworks sourdough loaf, crusts removed, diced large

Canola oil

½ cup butternut squash, diced large

½ cup pineapple, diced large

1½ cups brown sugar

2 cups half-and-half

1 tablespoon cinnamon

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place diced bread on baking sheet and bake until lightly toasted. Set aside.
  3. Heat two separate sauté pans over medium-high heat. Add approximately 1 tablespoon canola oil to each. Cook butternut squash and pineapple separately in pans until softened. Set aside to cool.
