I was doing pretty well this past weekend until sheer panic fell over me when I realized that Christmas is only 2 weeks away! I’ve got a mound of gifts to wrap still and a lot of planning to do for Christmas parties. I’ve been so happy that the Living Litehouse blog has been featuring so many ‘Holidazzle’ recipes lately because the lovely bloggers around here have been giving me so much appetizer inspiration!
Did you catch these great recipes:
I love dips and spreads but one-bite appetizers are also one of my specialties. One of my favorite flavor profiles is the combination of butternut squash and sage. It brings such a sweet and savory flavor to the table. I decided to combine these flavors into a delicious wonton cooked in a browned butter sauce. I guarantee that your guests will not want to walk away from a tray of these.
This recipe is a little tasky but you can make your life a little easier by finding freshly cubed butternut squash in most grocery produce sections in those little steamer bags. This saves you the hassle of peeling, coring and dicing. You can also prepare the wontons up to 2 days in advance and refrigerate covered. You’ll want to bring the wontons to room temperature before steaming them. I like to serve these wontons with a balsamic vinaigrette dip but the browned butter cooking process already gives them the perfect flavor.
