Butternut Pumpkin with Parmesan & Thyme

 

1 Butternut Squash 
4 tablespoons Olive Oil
1/2 tsp. Fresh Ground Nutmeg
1/3 Cup Fresh Breadcrumbs / Panko
1/2 Cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
1 Minced Garlic Clove
1 Tbsp. Finely Chopped Parsley
1/4 Cup Fresh Thyme Leaves
Salt and Pepper

 

Oven to 400

Slice it in half length wise and add seeds later to your oven tray to bake. Cut into 1/4'' slices.

On a parchment lined baking tray, pile the squash, drizzle the olive oil and the nutmeg and toss everything to coat evenly. All should have a thin coat of oil, amount may vary based on size of the squash. Spread them out in a single layer on the baking tray. You may need to use two, too much overlap won't yield a crunchy crust. 

In a food processor (or magic bullet) pulse together the breadcrumbs, parmesan, garlic, both herbs, a few pinches of salt and a lot of fresh black pepper. 

Sprinkle the topping on the squash. Bake for about 25-30 minutes until the tops are browned and the squash is cooked.
