  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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. Read More

I made this for Christmas dinner but wished I had made our weeknight staple of Simple Roasted Butternut Squash instead. Less is more with butternut squash. This got tossed out. Read More

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. Read More

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 Read More

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. Read More
