butternut squash (about 2 lbs.)
fresh ground nutmeg
grated parmesan cheese
finely chopped parsley
fresh thyme leaves
salt and pepper, to taste
- Oven to 400°F
- Peel the squash (vegetable peeler works great). Slice it in half length wise and discard the seeds. Cut into 1/4” slices.
- On a parchment lined baking tray, pile the squash, drizzle the olive oil and the nutmeg and toss everything to coat evenly. All slices should have a thin coat of oil, amount may vary based on size of the squash. Spread them out in a single layer on the baking tray. You may need to use two, too much overlap won’t yield a crunchy crust.
- In a food processor pulse together the breadcrumbs, parmesan, garlic, both herbs, a few pinches of salt and a lot of fresh black pepper.
- Sprinkle the topping on the squash. Bake for about 25-30 minutes until the tops are browned and the squash is cooked.
