Butternut Squash Gratin

A simple and tasty savory squash dish. A simple blogpost!

Butternut Squash Gratin

3 cups peeled and chopped butternut squash, cut into roughly 3/4 inch cubes
1 cup onion, chopped finely
1 T olive oil
1 egg
1/2 tsp salt
2 T mayonnaise
2/3 cup grated parmesan
1/3 cup panko bread crumbs
salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter an 8" square baking dish.

Place cubed squash in a pot. Cover squash with water and bring to a boil over high heat (lidded). Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes or until just tender. Rinse squash under cold water and drain.

While squash cooks, saute onions in olive oil on the stovetop until soft. Remove from heat and let cool.

Beat egg, 1/2 tsp salt and mayonnaise in a large bowl until well combined. Add 1/3 cup parmesan, panko crumbs, onion and squash to the mixture. Fold gently until combined. Season with salt and pepper.

Spoon mix into baking dish and top with the rest of the cheese. Bake 1 hr until heated through and cheese is melted. Serve hot. *To make semi-ahead (Thanksgiving, for example): Bake 30 minutes, let cool. Before ready to eat, reheat for 20 minutes in a hot oven.
