These Butternut Squash Crostinis are SO good. Savory and sweet (my FAV) and festive to boot! I am preparing several Christmas posts at the moment but I still have a few fall posts up my sleeve! This is one you do not want to miss. It not only looks beautiful, but it is sophisticated enough to serve at a dinner party. In fact, I highly recommend these for any hosting shindig because you can make the butternut squash mash ahead of time and then all you have to do is toast the bread and assemble.
What flavor profile are we talking here? Well, the butternut squash is salty and peppery which pairs so well with the almost bitter maple tahini dressing and sweet yet tart cranberries. The bread balances all the flavors out nicely too. Overall, this is an impressive appetizer that seems a lot more difficult to make than it really is. The hardest part is removing the skin from the butternut squash. Am I the only one who despises doing that? I love butternut squash…so I do it anyway…but ugh.
