This hearty dish is substantial enough to serve as a vegetarian main course, but also makes a nice accompaniment to roast chicken or turkey. The sliced apples and butternut squash lend sweetness, while a crumbly top of garlicky breadcrumbs makes for a savory balance.
Apple notes: Any firm-sweet apple will work well in this gratin.
Note: In a pinch, you can substitute 1-1/4 cups (3 ounces) of panko breadcrumbs for the fresh ones. Toss with 2 tablespoons melted butter, plus nutmeg and garlic; then sprinkle over the apples.
