Stinking Butternuts!

9th November 2016

A surprising combination, perhaps, but Stinking Bishop works well with the sweetness of butternut squash; a delicious seasonal dish!

This is a quick light supper, depending on how big your squash is - if you can't get a butternut squash, other types of squash work as just well, particularly onion squash.

  1. Ideally use one small squash per person and slice it in half, keeping it in the skin, but removing pips and seeds.
  2. Score the flesh and wrap the entire squash with cling film.
  3. Pop the halves in the microwave for around 3-4 minutes, to soften, but not cook through. This will depend on the size of your squash, but the aim is to start steaming the flesh.
  4. Once softened, score the flesh further and add ground pepper before adding slices of Stinking Bishop to the squash halves.
  5. Replace in the microwave for around 1 - 1.5 minutes, to melt the Stinking Bishop into the squash - you can opt to place squash halves under the grill or in the oven if you prefer, but not too high or the cheese will burn.
  6. Serve squash halves in a bowl, adding more Stinking Bishop to taste!
