Butternut Squash Bruschetta is a killer combination of fall’s must have ingredients – caramelized onions, sage, goat cheese and butternut squash – in brushetta form.
Creating Butternut Squash Bruschetta just worked.
I usually start the recipe developing process with a pen and paper. And, omgosh, you’d never be able to read my notes! Not only is my handwriting curvy and bubbly, it is enormous and on one can ever read it. Not to mention my angry cross outs, arrows and eureka-moment circles. However, the process came much more easily with Butternut Squash Bruschetta.
As I always do, I started with the basic ingredients and this time, it flowed like champagne:
- Butternut squash pairs well with sage.
- Add tangy goat cheese as a base with caramelized onions.
- Top with balsamic glaze for presentation and a tart offset with the butternut squash.
Butternut Squash Bruschetta hails the queen of fall with an adaptation celebrating ingredients that just plain work together.
The goat cheese in Butternut Squash Bruschetta is the foundation that holds it all together. But ricotta will do the same.
You know me – I’m a total goat cheese whore. See my most recent Marinara Goat Cheese Dip, Sun Dried Tomato Goat Cheese Dip and Goat Cheese and Apricot Spread. However, from sharing my love of this creamy, tangy cheese, I’ve found that it is not everyone’s favorite. If this is you, (hello, dining at my desk!), ricotta is the perfect replacement to soak up balsamic glaze and help the butternut squash stay in place.
Butternut Squash Bruschetta opens up a whole new world for bread and cheese.
