Butternut Squash and Bacon Breakfast Hash

Hash is such a versatile way to get a lot of different veggies and flavors into a simple dish and you can easily make it your own by subbing out any of the ingredients or adding others.  You can easily make a larger portion of this and portion it out to save for multiple breakfasts.  Just heat up in the microwave or throw in a pan to reheat and top with a fried or scrambled eggs in the morning!  

Ingredients

Serves: 2

  • 2 pieces of bacon, chopped
  • 2 cups cubed butternut squash
  • 2/3 cups bell peppers, chopped
  • 1/2 cup onion, diced
  • 2 cups kale, chopped and stems removed
  • salt and pepper to taste (I really like to use Borsari Salt)
  • toppings: fried or scrambled eggs, avocado, chopped tomatoes

Directions

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat.  Add chopped bacon (I really like to use my kitchen shears to just cut it over the pan).  Saute for 1-2 minutes, until it starts to release some bacon grease.  

Add cubed butternut squash, chopped bell peppers and diced onion.  Saute for about 8 minutes, or until your butternut squash is soft, but not mushy, and other veggies are softened.  Add your kale and saute for an additional 2 minutes.  Add salt and pepper to taste.  

Remove from heat and top with fried or scrambled eggs, diced avocado or chopped tomatoes.

You can also make multiple portions of this and separate it out in containers to eat throughout the week, just heating and adding the toppings in the morning!
