I loved the flavor of this dish. I thought that the combination was wonderful. The squash gave the dish a slightly sweet taste, as did the carmelied onions. I divided it into 2 dishes. Served one tonight and will take the other one to my mother's for Christmas. Thanks for sharing this recipe. I'll be making it again.
Very nice dish. I halved the recipe, since there were only 3 of us. I also couldn't find fresh sage, so subbed the equivalent of dried. The topping baked in 10 minutes. :)
This is a lovely recipe. I made it for Easter dinner and it was a hit. My only change would be to half the breadcrumbs. I also didn't use sage because I didn't have any, but will try it next time. The breadcrumbs kind of over powered the gruyere cheese in my opinion. I will make this again using a little less breadcrumbs. Thanks, Carole in Orlando
