Butternut pumpkin gratin

A simple french dish made of butternut pumpkin, bacon and with a crusty cheese topping.



  1. Preheat the oven at 210C.
  2. Cut the pumpkins into small cubes of around 3cm, then peel the pieces (easier in that order).
  3. Cook the pieces with a steam cooker or in unsalted boiling water for about 5 minutes. The pumpkin pieces must be cooked but not too mushy.
  4. While cooking the pumpkin, cut the bacon into big pieces.
  5. Put the pumpkin and bacon into a big gratin dish, mix them carefully. Add spices, herbs, cream, and top with a generous amount of cheese.
  6. Put in the oven for about 20 minutes.
  7. Serve with a green lettuce.
