I made this for Thanksgiving. It was easy and absolutely delicious. I even browned the slices the night before and just baked them before dinner on Thursday.
I've made this recipe several times, and it's always a big hit. The flavors of the caramelized shallots and the sherry blend beautifully with the sweet squash. Being able to assemble the dish hours before baking it, makes it easy to coordinate with other elements of a meal. It's now part of my Thanksgiving dinner tradition.
What a great recipe for delicata squash. Rates a place on the Thanksgiving table; that's how good it is.
Made it last night, and it was delicious. Caramelizing enhances the already-delicate flavor, and the dash of sherry was the perfect touch. Delicata was already my favorite squash--too bad it has such a short availability in early fall. Would love to make this for Thanksgiving, but it won't be available then.
