Susan Piper-American Eagle Regional Director Northeast Region Chicago


4 oz chilled soft fresh goat cheese (such as Montrachet), cut into 1-inch-thick rounds
2 lg eggs, beaten to blend
½ cup yellow cornmeal
4 oz ¼-inch-thick slices pancetta or 4 thick bacon slices, chopped
1 med onion, chopped
1 2 ¼ -lb butternut squash, peeled, seeded, coarsely chopped
4 ½ cups canned roasted-garlic chicken broth or low-salt chicken broth
2 tsp minced canned chipotle chilies
1 16-oz bag frozen sweet white corn (unthawed)
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 tsps minced fresh sage

Cut each cheese round into 8 wedges. Place eggs in small bowl. Place cornmeal in another bowl; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Working in batches, dip cheese into eggs, then into cornmeal, turning to coat. Press cornmeal gently to adhere. Place on baking sheet. Freeze 1 hour.
Cook pancetta in heavy large sauce-pan over medium heat until crisp, about 8 minutes. Using slotted spoon, transfer pancetta to paper towels. Add onion to drippings in pan; sauté until just tender, about 4 minutes. Add butternut squash, broth and chilies; simmer until squash is tender, stirring occasionally, about 20 minutes. Mix in corn; simmer until tender about 8 minutes. Transfer 3 ½ cups soup to blender; puree. Mix puree into remaining soup in pan. Season with salt and pepper. (Pancetta and soup can be made 8 hours ahead. Cover pancetta; chill. Chill soup uncovered until cold, then cover and keep chilled. Bring pancetta to room temperature before continuing.)
Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add frozen cheese; brown well, about 1 minute per side. Meanwhile, bring soup to simmer. Mix in sage. Ladle soup into bowls. Top with pancetta and cheese croutons.
