Ok y’all I have a confession to make. I can’t cook. I can’t cook at all. I can scramble an egg and bake a pumpkin pie. That’s the extent of my skills in the kitchen.
Now, I have this great fiancé who can actually cook real food! And his food tastes amazing. He’s helping me up my skills in the kitchen, and I’m going to share our recipes and my kitchen mishaps with you all.
We are really big into meal prepping
Who doesn’t love cooking one time, and having meals for the rest of the week. It’s super easy. I don’t have to think about what I’m eating for dinner AND I know it will be super healthy. It’s a win-win.
We made this dish yesterday as a side to low carb ziti. However, Paleo Running Momma recommends serving it with fried eggs, and it looks like a delish combo.
The apples provide a crisp crunch and sweetness that is balanced out by the tender squash and the salt from the butternut squash. The flavors are divine.
We use square ziplock containers, and divide this hash up into 8 servings (4 meals for each of us) along with the pasta as the main dish.
Servings: 8 (that makes 4 meals for me and my fiancé)
Roasted Butternut Squash Hash with Apples and Bacon Meal Prep Recipe
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes
- 6 cups of butternut squash cubed (I bought 2 pre-cut packages from Publix)
- 1/2 tbsp of olive oil (you can also use melted organic coconut oil)
- Sea salt to taste
- 12 slices of turkey bacon cut into 1 inch slices
- 2 granny smith apples, chopped
- 1 vidalia onion, chopped
- Preheat the oven to 425 degrees
- In a large mixing bowl, toss butternut squash in olive oil and an even sprinkle of sea salt. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Spread butternut squash on the baking sheet in a single layer.
- Roast in the oven for 30 minutes. They should be golden brown and soft.
- In a large skillet, add the cut bacon and stir occasionally to cook.
- Once the bacon begins to brown, add the onion and lower the heat to medium. Cook for 5 minutes. The bacon should be 3/4 done and onions will be soft.
- Drain 3/4 of the fat from skillet and then add the apples.
- Cook and stir until the apples are soft, about 5 minutes on low heat.
- Once the butternut squash is finished, mix into the skillet and remove from heat.
- Divide the dish into 8 daily containers (for meal prep) and warm before enjoying throughout the week!
