Give this side dish a try at your next meal and we're sure you won't have any leftovers. Butternut squash is layered with bacon, sautéed onions in sage and thyme and then baked with Sargento® Shredded Swiss Cheese and Sargento® Shredded Parmesan Cheese for ultimate cheesy taste in every serving.

  • 1 small butternut squash, about 1-1/2 lbs., peeled
  • 2 large slices thick-cut bacon, cut crosswise into 1/4-inch pieces
  • 1 medium red onion (8 oz.), cut into 1/4-inch thick slices
  • 2 tsp. finely chopped fresh sage
  • 2 tsp. finely chopped fresh thyme
  • 1/4 tsp. coarse salt
  • 1 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 1-1/4 cups (5 oz.) Sargento® Shredded Swiss Cheese
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup (2 oz.) Sargento® Shredded Parmesan Cheese
  • 1/2 cup toasted breadcrumbs
  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  2. Cut squash in half lengthwise and remove the seeds. Cut crosswise into 1/4-inch thick slices. Set aside.
  3. In medium skillet, cook bacon until brown and crisp. Drain on a paper towel-lined plate. Remove all but 1 tablespoon of the bacon drippings. Sauté the onion over medium-high heat in the bacon drippings until the onions are soft but not brown, 5 to 7 minutes. Add sage and thyme and mix well.
  4. Butter an 8 x 8-inch baking dish. Distribute half the squash slices in the dish. Sprinkle with half of the salt and pepper. Arrange half of the onions and half of the bacon over the squash. Repeat. Top with Swiss cheese. Pour the cream around the edges of the gratin. Cover loosely with foil and bake for 35 minutes. Remove the foil and add the Parmesan cheese. Top with breadcrumbs. Turn oven down to 375°F and bake uncovered 15 to 20 minutes, or until cheeses and breadcrumbs are golden brown. Transfer to a cooling rack and let stand for 15 minutes before serving.
