Recipe Ingredients for butternut squash gratin with onion and sage

1 tbl butter, unsalted
1 tbl olive oil
4 cups onions, chopped into 1-inch squares
3 tbl sage, fresh, chopped (or 1 tsp dried)
3 lb butternut squash, cut into 1/2 cubes (about 8 cups)
2 cloves garlic, minced

10 tbl heavy cream, (1/2 cup + 2 tbl), heated until warm

Recipe Directions for butternut squash gratin with onion and sage

  1. Heat oven to 350, lightly coat a gratin dish with butter.

  2. In a large skillet over low heat, melt the butter with the oil. Add the onions and sage. Cover and cook over low heat while you prepare the squash.

  3. Put the squash in a steaming basket and set over simmering water. Cover and let steam until the squash is tender, about 10 min. Put the squash in the prepared dish with the garlic and 3/4 tsp salt. Toss gently to combine.

  4. Continue to cook the onions, stirring frequently, until they are caramelized, about 25 min. total. Season with salt and pepper and add them to the gratin dish, mixing them with the squash. Pour the warm cream over the vegetables.

  5. Toss the breadcrumbs with the melted butter and sprinkle the crumbs evenly over the gratin. Bake until the top is browned and bubbling, about 40 minutes.
