Spiralized Butternut Squash Breakfast Bake
Hello, friends! I took a little time off to recover from Christmas, and we made a last-minute trip to Utah to attend a funeral. Needless to say, I’m really happy that school resumed this week and we’re back into our regular routine. AND I’ve got some new I’ll be sharing shortly.
Let’s talk about this breakfast bake! I’ve made it a couple of times — even froze it once and it did great! My favorite part is the spiralized butternut squash.
Aren’t these the prettiest veggie noodles you’ve ever seen? I prefer butternut noodles over zucchini noodles because they’re heartier and less watery than zucchini noodles tend to be. Plus, look at that color.
Would I lose any credibility if I admitted that I make a lot of my ingredient choices based on color coordination? Or just color in general?
By the way, if you don’t have a spiralizer, grab one! Especially if you’re going to be venturing into a paleo or low carb/keto lifestyle. Or just looking to add more vegetables to your diet. Or more orange noodles.
This is really easy to throw together, too. Just spiralized butternut squash, cooked & crumbled breakfast sausage, and a few handfuls of torn baby spinach.
If you’ve been around here for a while you may know that I like to throw handfuls of spinach into random stuff. It’s my go-to if I think a recipe needs more veg. Plus my kids are (usually) ok with bits of green in their food.
Like other breakfast bake an eggy mixture gets poured all over. This one also has almond milk, salsa verde, and some spices.
This could potentially be Whole30 compliant, too! Finding bulk breakfast sausage that’s Whole30 compliant might be next to impossible.
If you can’t find it, use my Homemade Chicken Breakfast Sausage recipe!
1. To make this a little more creamy, you can substitute 1/3 cup of the milk with heavy cream.
