Melt the butter in a large skillet and sauté the bread crumbs in the butter until lightly toasted. When cool enough to handle, press the toasted crumbs into the base and up the sides of a deep-dish 23 cm (9 in) pie plate.

Cook the squash in salted water until tender. Drain and mash coarsely. Let cool.

In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, thyme and salt. Add the flour and whisk until smooth. Stir in the squash and the swiss cheese. Pour the mixture into the prepared crust.

Bake for 45 minutes or until the center is firm.
