A butternut squash version of Pommes Anna.
Pommes Anna is a classic French dish that is a classic for a reason. It is the technique that makes this dish spectacular. There are only two ingredients in the classic French potato torte – potatoes and butter (a little salt, too).
I love, love LOVE butternut squash and so I wanted to do this classic dish with butternut squash – and I am so pleased with how this turned out. I even baked it in the oven and it still turned out so pretty on a platter. Try this as a Thanksgiving side this year – and you will get oooh’s and aaah’s galore, I promise!
Since squash does not have as much starch as potatoes, I decided a little cheese and flour were needed to hold the layers together. So, I tossed some Parmesan with a bit of flour to sprinkle in between the layers. This worked perfectly – and I will be making this dish again and again this fall. The only work is in the slicing – the rest is just assembling and throwing this in the oven.
