Ingredients

  • 8 slices bacon (or turkey bacon)
  • 3 cups roasted cubed butternut squash*
  • ½ tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 (5 ounce) bag spinach
  • 6 large eggs
  • cup unsweetened almond milk (or sub regular milk)
  • Freshly ground salt and pepper, to taste
  • ½ cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Instructions

  1. Cook your bacon first. Add bacon to a large skillet or pan and place over medium heat, cook bacon on both sides until crispy and golden brown. If the pan starts to smoke at any point, simply lower the heat. I always cook my bacon on medium low heat. Once bacon is done, blot with a paper towel to absorb excess grease, then chop into bite sized pieces and set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9 inch pie pan generously with nonstick cooking spray. Add the roasted, cooked cubed butternut squash cubes. Set aside.
  3. Place olive oil a large skillet over place over medium high heat. Add in spinach and cook until spinach wilts, about 2 minutes. Add spinach to the prepared pan with then top with butternut squash and chopped bacon.
  4. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, milk and salt and pepper. Pour egg mixture over the top of the spinach and butternut squash. Sprinkle the top with cheddar cheese, along with an additional sprinkle of salt and pepper. Bake for 35-45 minutes or until the egg sets up. Remove from heat and wait a few minutes before cutting into 6 slices. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

*If your squash isn’t already roasted, you can follow this tutorial on how to roast a butternut squash.

Alternatively, you can cook the squash on the stove top: Heat olive oil over medium heat in a large skillet. Add squash cubes and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally until the squash is tender, about 10 minutes. To speed up the cooking time, you can cover the pan and stir every few minutes -- just make sure the heat isn’t too high or your squash will burn.
