A sformato is a molded dish from Italy, typically made with beaten eggs, and falling texturally midway between souffle and flan. It can be sweet or savory.


2 pounds roasted butternut or acorn squash puree (halve, seed and roast the squash till tender, then force through a food mill or sieve) 2 eggs 1 tablespoon grated grana padano parmesan cheese 1/4 teaspoon grated nutmeg 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional) 1 cup whipping cream Sea salt and black pepper-to taste


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Butter eight 4-ounce ovenproof ramekins.
  • In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients together until smooth. Adjust the seasoning with sea salt and black pepper. Pour the mixture to almost the top of the buttered ramekins.
  • Place in a baking pan with water to come about halfway up the sides, cover and bake for 30 minutes or until the mixture is set and cooked through. Let rest a few moments, unmold and serve.
