Caramelized onions, hearty spinach, toast pieces and roasted butternut squash all topped with melty brie cheese. —Sarah | Wisconsin from Scratch

What You'll Need
  • 1/2 large butternut squash, peeled and cut into 1/2" pieces (about 2 cups)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • 8 ounces spinach, tough stems removed
  • 5 ounces rustic sourdough bread, toasted (about 3 thick slices)
  • 4 ounces brie cheese, sliced
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Combine the squash, 1 Tbsp olive oil, smoked paprika, ½ tsp salt, and pepper in a large bowl, mixing to coat everything evenly. Spread squash evenly on a baking sheet and roast in the oven at 400 degrees until tender, about 30 minutes.
  3. While squash roasts, heat the remaining 1 Tbsp oil in a large pan over medium-low heat. Add the onion, and cook, stirring occasionally, until onions are caramelized and very fragrant, about 25-30 minutes. The onions should be ready about the same time the squash is done roasting.
  4. Add the remaining ½ tsp salt and the apple cider vinegar to the pan, and cook 1 minute more. Add the spinach and cook until tender, about 3-4 minutes. Add the roasted squash to the pan. Tear the toasted bread into pieces and add to the pan. Mix everything together until well combined.
  5. Place cheese slices on top, cover pan, and cook until cheese has melted, about 2-3 minutes. Transfer pan to the table, grab some forks and dig in.
