Rosemary Butternut Squash Skillet Pie

This rosemary butternut squash skillet pie is like a mix between a squash gratin and pie. It comes together in minutes and bakes up as a festive fall side dish.

If things pan out like they’re supposed to, I’m going to be on a tropical island for two weeks later this month, including over Thanksgiving. It’s hard to really have anything negative to say about a trip to the tropics as the temperatures plunge and my skin turns pastier by the day, but when it coincides with the best eating day of the entire year, there’s a bit of sadness buried inside me somewhere.

I’m sure it will quickly go away when I’m poolside with a delicious alcoholic beverage in hand though.

So, to make up for a missed holiday, I’m eating like it’s Thanksgiving for the next two weeks starting with this butternut squash skillet pie.

The idea of using a pancake mix outside of breakfast has always been a bit weird to me. Weird and very southern American. I’m about as far from Southern as they come yet here I am with a cast iron skillet and side dish that uses pancake mix.

This pie is like a gratin meets bread pudding meets side dish. It’s pretty much the perfect addition to your Thanksgiving table and it couldn’t be easier to make; mix everything together, pour into a skillet and bake. It’s a savory flavor explosion and while I’m not sure it outdoes a tropical island in the middle of winter, it’s close.

    Your holiday sounds exquisite. It’s summer here in Australia and for this American, I’d love some cooler/cold weather to celebrate Thanksgiving (and Christmas). The rest of the time I’m happy to have summer. :)

    Your butternut skillet pie is very intriguing with the use of pancake mix. Clever!

    Ah, a trip to the islands… I love it. I’ve been in an eat-everything-thanksgiving mode because I mean how could you possibly get your fill of Thanksgiving type foods just one day of the year? Never new you could use pancake mix for something like this!!

    This is a wonderful recipe. I do have one question. Do you peel the squash first or is it ok to leave the skin on? Regardless, I will definitely be making this again. And again.

    Thank you for the great recipe!
