Food52 Review: These cute, little rolls are a wonderful combination of flavors. The sweet glaze on the squash is a wonderful match for the salty feta. A little lemon juice mashed in with avocado adds just enough tang. Make them for an outdoor summer dinner party. - StephanieThe Editors

I love this recipe, but my access to grill is limited... Have you ever tried making this dish in the oven?
