1 small butternut squash, peeled, seeded and cubed or cut into half moons
1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
kosher salt
Freshly ground balck pepper
1 shallot, minced
¼ c red wine vinegar
1 Tbsp. brown sugar
5 oz. baby spinach (about 6 cups)
½ c pecans, toasted and chopped

In same skillet, cook shallot over medium-high heat until tender, 4 minutes. Stir in red wine vinegar and brown sugar and mix well. Whisk in 2 Tbsp. bacon grease and season with salt and pepper.

Place spinach in a large bowel. Add pecans and roasted butternut squash and pour over warm vinaigrette, tossing gently to combine.
