I love crostinis, finger food, appetizer party food. But it is so rare to be served such a thing! I created a dinner based on this! There are a lot of steps but I promise the prep shouldn’t take longer then ten minutes and the cooking time is another 15 minutes tops. (Prepare all the ingredients in advance so you can do one thing after the other!)
I love when a salad fills me up and is a full meal. There is so much flavor in this one dish and it is so filling, you will feel light and satisfied and because of the butternut squash you wont be hungry until the morning!
The trick to this recipe is to do things in larger batches and be able to pull them out of the freezer the morning of. SO if you are making this, double or triple the dough recipe and freeze it in plastic bags tied into knots and then pull it out whenever you feel like pizza, focaccia or calzones for dinner! I keep the roasted peppers in my freezer in small sandwich bags and pull them out to add to a tomato sauce, salad, soup, eggs, everything really…
I love calling these fries. Even though they aren’t fried or crunchy, they are such a great flavorful and meaty side to a burger.
I used a blend of black and regular lentils (cooking them for the same amount of time) It really helps to place the mixture in the fridge for a bit to hold the burger together more but if you want to eat it right away, just be very cautious when turning it over, best with a spatula and spoon together. If you are eating the burger with cheese, place the cheese on top immediately after flipping it over to the second side.
