Introduction: Butternut Squash and Feta Cheese Croustades
This is me entry for the finger foods contest- these are great little canapes- delicious and sweet squash combined with salty feta cheese and earthy walnuts- Mmmm! You'll find croustades in the world section of your supermarket, but if you can't find them, the squash/feta/walnut mixture can also be eadily put onto peices of toast or ritz crackers or crostini if you like, its just a great flavour combination. Also, any type of pumpkin or squash can be used in place of the butternut, it's just the type i tend to use.
