SMOKED HAM & BUTTERNUT SQUASH BREAKFAST HASH

July 25, 2013

There’s a point when you’re about 50% done with the current season, that you remember that the next season exists and is coming. David and I had this moment on Sunday. “Woah! Remember Fall? That will be so fun to wear boots and put nutmeg in every recipe!”

I always say my favorite season is whatever one it’s been the longest since we’ve had. Because I miss it! The butternut squash in this breakfast hash is kind of a shout out to Autumn, while still being 100% summer appropriate.

    This was a really good meal. My husband & I appreciated how filling it was without grains, & it’ll make perfect leftovers. However, I’m confused as to why you didn’t add any seasoning (aside from salt & pepper). It was very lacking. I experimented & added some brown sugar, cumin, allspice, & a touch of cinnamon. The green onions could be increased, too. I also roasted some pecans along with the squash to add. Additionally, I felt that the apples could be added a little later to the pan than the other ingredients as they were kind of mushy, but that’s a matter of preference. Even with all of this, my husband said the seasonings could still be increased, so I will keep experimenting, but the base of the recipe/combination of ingredients were good and comfort food like.
