The dish: “This gratin is straightforward in its enthusiasm for the season, but graciously so. It employs a host of cozy flavors that give great depth to the dish; the butternut squash is bathed in apple cider vinegar, tossed with caramelized onions and topped with nutty Gruyere cheese, fresh sage and crunchy, toasted hazelnuts.” Read the full recipe by Kimberley Hasselbrink.
Stephanie says: “Most of my favorite Thanksgiving foods are brown and orange: gravy, stuffing, sweet potatoes and squash dishes (like the hazelnut-topped gratin). So to make my table a little more colorful, I like to use vibrant dishes and linens. It makes even the most monochromatic plate food pop.”
