Pecan Squash Rolls Appetizer

A sweet, tasty, & unique appetizer. Try out my Pecan Squash Rolls Appetizer. I don't care what time of year it is, I love squash. I love the combination of squash, pecans, and brown sugar so I set out to play in the kitchen to make up a recipe including those ingredients. Tortillas are so versatile that I set out to make an appetizer roll wrapped up in a tortilla. This yummy appetizer is so tasty you feel like you are eating a treat rather than a vegetable roll. This is a perfect appetizer for a party or side dish any time of year. Fall is often a squash season, but I love this recipe anytime of year.

  • Spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray. Lay a tortilla on the pan or on a plate. Spread 1/3 cup squash mixture across tortilla. Sprinkle with 2 Tablespoons crushed pecans and 1 Tablespoon brown sugar. Roll tortilla tightly. Place rolls open side down to ensure the rolls stay closed during cooking. Place five rolls per cookie sheet.
  • Cook pans separately for best results. Build the first pan of rolls and pop it in the oven. Let that cook while you build the second pans of rolls. Cook rolls for 22-25 minutes at 400 degrees until tortillas are browned and crispy. Remove from the oven and let cool for 10 minutes. Slice in about one inch size rolls. The rolls are ready to serve!

This recipe tastes the best when served soon after it has been cooked. The crispiness of the tortilla adds a delicious crunch to this appetizer. Any leftover rolls may be stored in the fridge for  up to several days. The tortilla does soften in the fridge however so the crispiness is lost as a leftover, but the yummy treat taste remains. Heat these little rolls up for a tasty leftover addition to any meal or for a snack.
If using smaller tortillas, add less squash mixture, less pecans, and less brown sugar per tortilla.
