Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a gratin baking dish with butter.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon butter and olive oil in a large skillet over low heat; add onions and sage. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until onions are browned, about 25 minutes. Season with salt and black pepper.
  3. Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to a boil. Add squash, cover, and steam until tender, 10 to 20 minutes. Transfer squash to prepared gratin dish; toss with garlic and 3/4 teaspoon salt. Add the caramelized onions to the pan and gently mix to combine.
  4. Warm cream in a saucepan over low heat; pour over squash mixture. Stir to coat. Combine bread crumbs and 1 1/2 tablespoons melted butter together in a bowl; sprinkle over squash mixture.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until gratin is bubbling and breadcrumbs are browned, 20 to 25 minutes.

We loved this. It's a very mild side dish that isn't going to interfere with any other part of your meal, but it's almost creamy and just loaded with flavor. Thanks lyss8 for a special new side dish that presents itself very well.

I'm vegan so I substituted cashew cream and I added dried cranberries. Very yum!

I was looking for a different recipe for squash and used this one. It was very good but I think it needs a little something for more flavor. I think the next time I make it I will try adding some nutmeg

This is my new go-to! My husband requested that I make this at least once a week, and he isn't one for recipe redos! I actually forgot to add the sage the first time I made this, and it still turned out really well.

Good recipe. I added a little more butter for more flavor. however, the butternut squash makes this dish moist enough. Well received by my guests.
