Roasted Acorn Squash + Bacon Bruschetta

Roasted Acorn Squash and Bacon Bruschetta | This easy recipe is the perfect make-ahead fall appetizer! Roast squash, bacon, and red onion on a sheet pan. Roasted acorn squash gets whipped with cream cheese and roasted onion, then spread on grilled baguette and topped with crumbled bacon.

Curried Chicken Wild Rice Soup
