Sweet Potato Acorn Squash Au Gratin

Sweet Potato Acorn Squash Au Gratin
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, divided
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 4 cups 3/4-inch sweet potato slices
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream, divided
  • 1 cup 1-inch peeled acorn squash cubes
  • 2 sprigs fresh thyme, leaves removed
  • kosher salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup grated Asiago cheese


  1. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a heavy saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir onion and garlic in hot butter until onion is golden and soft, 5 to 10 minutes.
  2. Stir sweet potatoes, 1 3/4 cups cream, acorn squash, thyme, kosher salt, and pepper into onion mixture. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer until potatoes and squash are tender, 20 to 25 minutes.
  3. Preheat oven to 385 degrees F (195 degrees C). Butter an 8x13-inch baking dish with remaining butter.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until tender and hot throughout, 25 to 35 minutes. Remove aluminum foil and bake until top is golden brown, about 10 minutes more.
