2 small butternut squash, peeled and cut into 1 inch cubes
3 tbsp butter
1 medium onion, small diced
1 1/2 tbsp fresh thyme, chopped
¼ tsp ground nutmeg
1 cup chicken broth
2/3 cup cream
½ cup grated gruyere
¼ cup grated white cheddar
¼ cup breadcrumbs
1 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
Salt and pepper to taste

1. Preheat the oven to 400F.

2. Place squash on a baking sheet and bake until fork tender, about 10 minutes.

3. In a large sauce pan, heat 2 tablespoons of butter. Add in the onions and sweat until translucent. Add in thyme and cook an additional minute until fragrant. Add in the squash, nutmeg, a pinch of salt and pepper and cook for about 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Add in the broth and cook until it’s mostly absorbed. Then add the cream and cook until thickened, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat.

4. In a small saucepan heat the last tablespoon of butter, then add the parsley and breadcrumbs and toss until everything is mixed together. Set aside.

5. Transfer the squash mixture to a baking dish, top with the bread crumbs and then both of the cheeses. Bake for about 30 minutes or until browned. Let rest for a couple minutes before serving.
