Quebec squash au gratin



  • 1/2 Quebec Hubbard squash (approximately 1 litre / 4 cups finely sliced squash)
  • 45 ml (3 tbsp.) unsalted butter
  • 375 g (13 oz.) sliced ham (Polish or Black Forest)
  • 120 g (4 oz.) Swiss cheese
  • 30 ml (2 tbsp.) minced fresh parsley
  • 180 ml (3/4 cup) milk
  • 180 ml (3/4 cup) 15% cream


Preheat oven to 190ºC (375ºF).

  1. Peel and finely slice squash.
  2. In a buttered gratin dish, layer half the squash with half the ham and sprinkle with half the cheese and parsley. Repeat layers.
  3. Dot with pats of butter. Season with pepper.
  4. Pour enough milk and cream to barely cover.
  5. Cover with aluminum foil. Place in center of oven. Bake for approximately 30 minutes. Remove aluminum foil. Continue baking uncovered for 15-20 minutes, until the gratin is golden and the squash is tender.

* You can use any other type of squash. Just make sure you have enough to obtain 1 litre (4 cups) of sliced squash. So it may be necessary to use more than half a squash as indicated.
