Yesterday this idea smacked me across the face. I was looking for something to eat, noticed my huge butternut on the counter, and realized I haven't posted a Laughing Cow Recipe idea in awhile. Then I thought…
hmpf, cheese and butternut… they go together. Right? Why not. Let's try something different.
This idea was born.
Let me tell you ---now, after I've eaten this--- cheese and butternut squash DO go together and this was the perfect dish to satisfy the melted cheese craving I've had for days!
Here's what I did…
- 4 Thin Slices from the top of a butternut squash each about ¼ inch thick
- 1 Mini Babybel Light Round
- About 1 tsp olive oil
- Pinch of Kosher Salt
- Pinch of dried Rosemary
Preheat the broiler on High.
Cut the butternut squash in slices. You want it thin but not too thin that it falls apart, and thick but not too thick it won't cook up fast. About ¼ inch worked perfectly.
Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil. Drizzle the oil over the squash rounds and rub in. Sprinkle both sides with salt and rosemary,
Place under the broiler on the top most rack and cook for about 4-5 minutes a side until the edges start to burn and the squash softens. Note: keep an eye on them, they cook fast!
While the squash is cooking, cut the Mini Babybel..
…into 3 round slices.
Pull the squash out of the oven. Turn off the broiler.
Squash, cheese, squash, cheese, squash, cheese, squash.
Place back on the cookie sheet and in the warm over for about 2 minutes.
No need to turn it on. There will be enough heat leftover to melt the cheese.
Just look at it for a minute. So pretty, no?
