Merritt's Butternut Squash Gratin Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 12)
Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2008
One of the considerations I use in rating any recipe is the cost of the ingredients vs. the taste. Some recipes are worth the expense and some aren't. This one wasn't. My husband and I thought the flavor of this recipe was just OK. I won't make it again because I didn't think it was worth the time it took to make it, but mainly because it is VERY expensive to make. I live in Atlanta and Gruyere cheese is $19.00 per pound! That's right -- an 8 oz. block of it cost me $9.50. When you add in the cost of fresh rosemary and thyme, extra sharp cheddar, and the cost of the squash, it costs about $18.00 to make this dish. It would have to be extra super delicious for me to pay this much to make it again and it just wasn't.

Okay Merritt, worthy of a 5 star rating!!! I'm a butternut squash *newbie* and this dish was VERY GOOD! My squash came from my garden, so I'm not sure it was 2.5 lbs (measured 9"). Since I wasn't sure of the weight, I did cut back on all the cheeses slightly. Prep work is about 30 minutes, but the end result is worth it. I used panko bread crumbs slightly crushed (as suggested by the submitter) and this added nice texture. I enjoyed the combination of the three cheeses in this dish! Since I have an abundance of this squash taking over the yard, I will be making this a few times this summer!! THANKS for a great recipe!

Note in response to Laura: Great question! Yes, you can make it all ahead of time, just keep the the squash part and the breadcrumb mixture separate until you are ready to reheat the squash mixture and finish it. Otherwise the breadcrumbs get soggy. Other notes: Using coarse breadcrumbs smashed up a little bit works a little better than the fine canned breadcrumbs you get at the grocery store. Also you can use all cheddar if gruyere or emmenthaler are too difficult or expensive... but I really like the flavor they give.
