Easy Kabocha Squash au Gratin

Easy Kabocha Squash au Gratin

I received some cute, heart-shaped cast-iron casserole dishes, so I prepared kabocha squash au gratin. I tried combining a lot of the steps together since washing dishes is a pain!

The cheese is a little hard to melt, so before putting it into the oven, you can microwave for about a minute.

2 servings
  1. 1/2 Kabocha squash
  2. 1 Onion
  3. 20 grams Butter
  4. 4 tbsp Flour
  5. 600 ml Milk
  6. 1 dash Salt and pepper
  7. 2 Soup stock cube
  8. 1 Natural cheese


  1. Edit

    Cut the kabocha into bite-sized chunks, then microwave for 4-5 minutes.

    Thinly slice the onion, then gently sauté in the frying pan with butter.

    Once the onions have fully cooked, mix in a little flour at a time.

  4. Edit

    Add the milk in portions and mix well after each incorporation until it is your desired consistency.

  5. Edit

    Add the salt, pepper, and soup stock cubes.

  6. Edit

    Add the kabocha and simmer a bit until creamy. If you break up the kabocha with a wooden spatula, you'll be able to speed up the process a bit.

  7. Edit

    Pour into a heatproof container and top with cheese and panko (I didn't have panko when I made the one shown in the photo, so I crumbled up some bread instead).

  8. Edit

    The inside is already cooked, so just watch it in the oven and take it out when the surface has browned. I baked it at 200℃ for 10 minutes.

  9. Edit

    I bought a new baking dish and tried out this kabocha squash gratin! The surface is crispy and delicious!

  10. Edit

    Here's the Halloween version! I added macaroni to it.
