When people think of healthy finger food, cheese and butter are not necessarily the first things that come to mind. But my philosophy is always to eat a lot of good with a little bad. Healthy food is always best when you can’t tell it’s healthy. After all, you don’t want to be responsible for the one finger food tray that no one wants to pounce on even after 5 glasses of eggnog.
The second recipe is a butternut version of my favorite squash toasts from Dan Kluger at ABC Kitchen. I serve mine on gluten-free bread and instead of slathering the bottom with ricotta, I top the squash mixture with a helping of gooey Président® Manchego and toasted pumpkin seeds.
Let’s just say if the trays of my childhood included butternut squash, my mother would not have felt the need to drag me back to the living room where I belonged.

These toasts would make for great Thanksgiving leftovers. Try substituting mashed sweet potatoes for the squash!
