How to make Fall Breakfast Hash:
I used my favorite cast iron skillet for this recipe, and gathered up the following ingredients:
- butternut squash
- brussels sprouts
- sliced mushrooms
- red onion
- salt and pepper
Nothing fancy, just letting the earthy veggies and bacon to provide all the flavor.
We start by prepping our vegetables. You will need to dice up the butternut squash, and slice the brussels into quarters or halves.
Having the leaves fall off the brussels makes them even crispier and tastier! Be sure to dice up the butternut squash into small pieces so they can cook properly. While prepping the veggies, heat up a large skillet and cook the bacon. You will remove the bacon and save some of that bacon fat to cook the veggies. Toss those veggies in and let them get crispy and softened!
After about 8-10 minutes, the veggies will look crispy and flavorful. Create 4 “wells” in the veggie mixture to add the eggs. Gently crack them and place into those spaces. Cover with a lid! This will help to cook the eggs properly, but also softened the butternut squash a little more. Keep covered until eggs are done to your liking. Mine usually take around 3 minutes and I like them with a runny yolk. You can also cook extra for more firm eggs.
Toss the bacon back into the pan and sprinkle with salt and pepper. You can also use other seasoning, I love Everything but the Bagel seasoning. Serve hot!
Sweet Potatoes: these make an easy swap in place of butternut squash
Bell peppers: Another fun ingredient that can replace the brussels or the mushrooms
Sausage: Want to do a sausage version instead? I don’t blame you! It’s delicious with sausage!
Egg Free: Yup, still delicious without eggs. In fact, it makes an amazing side dish without the eggs.
Fall Breakfast Hash
- 4 slices bacon
- 1.5 cups diced butternut squash
- 2 cups diced brussels sprouts
- 1.5 cups sliced baby bella mushrooms
- 1/4 cup diced red onion
- 4 large eggs
- salt and pepper (to taste)
Heat a large skillet to medium - medium high heat. Cook the bacon to your desired crispiness (about 5-7 minutes total). Remove the bacon and reserve 2 tbsp of bacon fat to leave in the skillet. Keep the pan heated to medium on the stove.
Toss in the vegetables to the hot skillet. Saute the veggies, turning occasionally until lightly browned. This will take about 8-10 minutes.
Create 4 wells in the pan, enough room for the eggs to fit. Alternatively, you can cook them on a separate pan. Crack the eggs in each space, and cover the pan with a lid. Turn the heat down to medium low. Cook for another 3-5 minutes (depending on how you like your eggs). For runny eggs, it takes me right about 4 minutes.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper and serve hot!
