Nonstick cooking spray
3 slices center-cut bacon or turkey bacon
1 1/2 cups chopped sweet onion
1 tablespoon light whipped butter or light buttery spread (such as Brummel & Brown)
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
3/4 teaspoon salt
8 cups cubed butternut squash
1 teaspoon chopped garlic
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
3 wedges The Laughing Cow Light Creamy Swiss
1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and mist an 8 x 8-inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.
2. Cook bacon according to package directions until crispy, chop or crumble, and set aside. Mist a large skillet with nonstick cooking spray and place over medium-high heat. Add onion, butter, cayenne pepper, and 1/4 teaspoon salt and cook, stirring, for 3 to 5 minutes, until slightly softened. Reduce heat to medium-low and continue stirring for 20 to 25 minutes, until browned and caramelized. Remove from heat.
3. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add squash and cook 10 to 15 minutes, until very tender. Drain and mash in a large bowl. Add garlic, pepper, remaining salt, and cheese, breaking it into pieces and mixing well. Spread mixture evenly in the baking pan and top with caramelized onion and bacon. Bake until dish is hot throughout, about 15 minutes.
