Butternut Squash Soup

Creamy and buttery making this recipe is very easy and requires little attention to detail or much time. It is one of my favorite soups. Garnishes for this soup can and should be rather simple, chopped chives or thinly sliced scallion. Maybe a spoonful of finely chopped egg and parsley. But being American why not crispy chopped bacon or small cubes of ham. Another idea to make this more of a meal is to add small chicken or veal meatballs.

A Quick Note

I wanted to take a minute to say that I do try and weigh as many of the ingredients as I can. I think it helps make recipe results more consistent. Of course professional bakers even measure liquids by weight. I don't mind pulling out my little digital scale when I need to.

Canapes


I don't have a many canapes here. The ones I share are super quick, very tasty and most of all tasty. Your guests will appreciate the effort.
