Butternut Squash Bruschetta
Butternut Squash Bruschetta is a killer combination of fall’s must have ingredients – caramelized onions, sage, goat cheese and butternut squash – in brushetta form. *Prepped this appetizer in the lovely Allana Bytes’ kitchen.

Instructions
  1. Set oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Using a fork, poke holes in butternut squash. Place butternut squash on a plate in microwave for 2 minutes 30 seconds. Peel and chop.
  3. Put olive oil in medium-sized skillet and add squash. Add a dash of salt and pepper and cook until tender, should take 10-12 mins. Set aside.
  4. Slice bread in 1/2 inch pieces. Sprinkle with light olive oil and bake for about 10 mins, until toasted.
  5. Add butter to skillet (I use the same one the butternut squash cooked in) on low medium heat. Add onions and cook slowly, stirring frequently. If onions start to burn too much turn down heat. Onion should take 15 mins to caramelize. Set aside.
  6. While the onions are caramelizing, mince sage. Mix goat cheese, caramelized onion, milk and half the minced sage in a small bowl.
  7. Once bread is done, top pieces with goat cheese mixture, butternut squash (using the goat cheese to secure them), balance of the minced sage and balsamic glaze.
  8. Serve immediately.
