Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large
ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and thyme and
cook, stirring, until the onion softens, about 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, combine the butternut and kabocha squash in a large
microwave-safe bowl with 1 cup water. Cover with plastic wrap and
microwave until the squash is just tender, about 5 minutes. Drain and add
the squash to the skillet along with the garlic, mace, 1 teaspoon salt and a
few grinds of pepper. Cook, stirring, about 3 minutes. Add the broth and
cook until it is mostly absorbed, about 5 more minutes. Stir in the heavy
cream and cook until slightly thickened, 2 minutes.
Melt the remaining 1 tablespoon butter in the microwave and toss with the
breadcrumbs, parmesan and parsley; season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle
over the squash, then top with the gruyere. Transfer the skillet to the oven
and bake until golden, about 30 minutes. Let rest 5 minutes before serving.
