I just made this dip for a dinner party we’re going to and I had to write it down before it was forgotten. Back in May of 2008 I posted a recipe for butternut squash dip that I had found online which was pretty good, but I knew I could do better. The addition of the fresh sage is critical. The added goat cheese gives it a nice tang without overpowering the butternut squash and the anchovy fillets give it a depth of flavor without anyone ever guessing there’s little fishies in there. Give this a try, you will wow your guests, I promise.
