Nothing evokes autumn quite like the nutty taste of fresh squash, and nothing enhances its flavor quite like doughy French bread, thyme and Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar.

  • 1½ Tbsp. canola oil
  • 2 cups peeled butternut squash, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • ¼ cup chopped onion
  • 1 pkg. (10 oz.) frozen chopped spinach, drained and squeezed dry
  • ½ tsp. dried thyme
  • ¼ cup dry white wine or chicken broth
  • 5 eggs
  • 1¾ cups 1% milk
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 6 cups cubed crusty whole wheat French bread
  • 2 cups (8 oz.) Sargento® Shredded Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese, divided
  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Spray 2-quart casserole dish with cooking spray and set aside. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat; add squash and onions and cook, stirring until squash is just tender, about 10-12 minutes. Add spinach to skillet of squash mixture; stir in thyme and wine. Cook, stirring for 2-3 minutes, until most of the liquid has evaporated. Remove from heat and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk eggs and add milk, salt and pepper. Stir in bread and squash mixture; toss gently. Set aside for 10 minutes.
  3. Transfer half of bread mixture to casserole dish; top with 1 cup cheese and remaining bread mixture. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and top with remaining cheese and bake for an additional 5-10 minutes or until center is set.
