  • 1 small butternut squash, peeled, seeded, and cubed

  • 2 cups sweetcorn kernels (fresh or frozen)

  • 1 medium onion, chopped

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 red bell pepper, diced

  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese

  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme

  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano

  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) and lightly grease a baking dish
  • In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic, and red bell pepper. Sauté until the onion becomes translucent and the pepper softens, about 5 minutes.

  • Transfer the butternut squash and sweetcorn mixture to the prepared baking dish. Spread it out evenly.
  • Sprinkle the cheese and breadcrumb mixture over the top of the butternut and sweetcorn mixture.
  • Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes.
  • After 25 minutes, remove the foil and continue baking for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the butternut squash is tender.
  • Once done, remove the bake from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before serving.



Here are some additional notes and tips for making Butternut and Sweetcorn Bake.
This Butternut and Sweetcorn Bake makes a delicious side dish or vegetarian main course. Enjoy!
1. Butternut squash can be quite tough to peel. To make it easier, you can pierce the squash with a fork and microwave it for 2-3 minutes. This will soften the skin slightly, making it easier to peel and cube.
2. If using frozen sweetcorn, make sure to thaw it before adding it to the skillet. You can either thaw it in the refrigerator overnight or quickly thaw it in the microwave.
3. Feel free to customize the seasonings according to your taste preferences. You can add a pinch of chili flakes for some heat or substitute the dried herbs with fresh herbs like rosemary or thyme.
4. For a creamier texture, you can mix in 1/2 cup of sour cream or Greek yogurt before transferring the mixture to the baking dish. This will add a creamy element to the bake.
5. If you don't have breadcrumbs on hand, you can use crushed crackers or panko breadcrumbs as a substitute. They will add a nice crunchy texture to the topping.
6. If you're a fan of extra cheese, you can sprinkle some additional grated cheese on top of the bake during the last few minutes of baking. This will create a cheesy crust on the surface.
7. Allow the bake to cool for a few minutes before serving. This will help the flavors to meld together and make it easier to cut and serve.
8. Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. You can reheat it in the oven or microwave before serving.
