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.

It can easily take the place of a traditional stuffing like this chestnut stuffing for a holiday meal.

And, it goes great alongside a main dish like some air fryer Cornish hens or even a full sized turkey!

Pair it with some green vegetables (I’m always partial to these festive cranberry goat cheese and bacon green beans) and a touch of cranberry sauce (take your pick between a boozy bourbon cranberry sauce or a simple 5-ingredient slow cooker cranberry sauce) and you’ve got a lovely little holiday meal!

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!

My sister is traveling over Thanksgiving too. I am so mad at her. Because I'll miss cooking with her! Yet she swears that it is the best time of year to leave the country. Have a great trip. Love the pancake mix BTW. Why not?
