Butternut Squash Gratin
A delicious butternut squash gratin. The perfect side dish for Thanksgiving or any weeknight meals.
Cook the Onion and Squash in a skillet:
Melt 2 tablespoons of butter and 1 tablespoon of oil in a large, ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat.
Add the onion and thyme and cook, stirring, until the onion softens, about 5 minutes.
Stir in the squash, garlic powder, ground nutmeg, ground sage, salt, and black pepper, cover and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Bake the Squash gratin in the Oven:
Spoon the squash mixture into the prepared baking dish or use an ovenproof skillet.
Pour the heavy cream over the mixture evenly.
In a medium bowl, combine the bread crumbs and 2 Tbs. olive oil and mix in the Gruyère and cheddar cheese. Sprinkle evenly over the squash. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, or until the top is browned and the squash is very tender.
