Butternut Squash Bake

I found this lovely recipe here:

  • 1 (4 pound) butternut squash - peeled, seeded, and cubed
  • 1/3 yellow onion, minced
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup Italian bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh thyme
  • 6 ounces crumbled blue cheese
  • sea salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup Italian bread crumbs


  1. Preheat an oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Toss the squash, onion, olive oil, 1/2 cup Italian bread crumbs, thyme, and blue cheese in a large mixing bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Pour the mixture into a large baking dish. Sprinkle 1/4 cup bread crumbs over the squash.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until lightly browned on top, 35 to 40 minutes.

e-notes: So I love, love, love this. So does my husband. We put way less blue cheese, though. We put a small amount in the mix and bake it like it says. Then we'll let people sprinkle how much or how little of blue cheese they want. A little goes a long ways in my opinion. My one boy didn't like it too much until he very lightly sprinkled it with the cheese. YUM.
