Bruscetta with Butternut Squash with Bacon and Gruyere
This can be a great appetizer. Starter served with a great salad or a side to a nice bowl of soup or stew. To me a nice pork stew or a simple potato soup would be perfect.
This is quick and easy. Some simple roasted squash added with some onions, sauteed bacon as a topping and cheese. All can be made ahead and put together minutes before you serve it.
It is simple and so flavorful. You could also use pancetta if you didn’t like bacon or even turkey bacon. Gruyere is my choice, swiss or even a provolone or other cheeses will work.
- 1 medium butternut squash peeled, seeded and cut into 1-1 1/2 inch cubes
