Pear & Maple Roasted Squash Bruschetta

Pear & Maple Roasted Squash Bruschetta

Recipe: Marcia Selden Catering

Farmers’ Markets are piled high with brilliant orange squash of all shapes and sizes. The great harbinger of Autumn has arrived, and there are as many ways to cook and serve them as there are varieties.

This recipe signals the change of seasons in more than a few ways. The natural sweetness of butternut squash is heightened by roasting it in a light bath of local maple syrup and then layered with thinly sliced, firm pears and a smear of bold, stinky cheese

Like most bruschetta, this one is more of an easy assemblage than a cooking project.


  1. Liz, I made the Pear and Butternut Squash Bruschetta for guests on Friday evening. I am not the most innovative cook…well, needless to say, it was a big success!! Thanks! Angela
