Indian Summer Gratin with Butternut Squash, Potatoes, Corn, and Bacon

This is another one of those recipes that I liked so much I made it twice in a row. It’s a wonderful casserole that can be served for dinner because it’s a complete meal. It’s also nice as a side-dish. The flavors go so well together.

I will warn you […]
