Brussels Sprouts, Bacon and Spiralized Butternut Squash Bake

Brussels Sprouts, Bacon and Spiralized Sweet Potato Bake

Happy Super Bowl Sunday!

Originally I was going to make this a Sweet Potato Noodle bake, but I had a butternut squash laying around, so I tested it with the squash and the consistency turned out so much better. So here we are, with this Butternut Squash bake!

I’m making a new goal for this winter: make brunch at my place and invite my friends over.

Brussels Sprouts, Bacon and Spiralized Sweet Potato Bake

I was thinking last night, that I do too many dinner dates and brunches out, but never have friends over for brunch. Plus, I have so many great recipes that are crowd pleasures (like today’s bake or this frittata), so why not have friends over to enjoy?

Plus, what pairs better with bacon than a mimosa?

However, I’ve always been a fan of the breakfast-for-dinner meal. It was my favorite school lunch, actually. My mother always packed my lunches, but on the days I knew it was going to be breakfast-for-lunch, I told her not to pack me lunch so I could partake in the french toast and pancakes.

Brussels Sprouts, Bacon and Spiralized Sweet Potato Bake

The one note I’ll make about this recipe, is that if you star to see the butternut squash brown, just give the bake a little stir, or, spritz with cooking spray or give another drizzle of olive oil. You can also cover it with foil!

Whatever you’re doing for Super Bowl Sunday (whether you’re watching it or not), make time for yourself – plan out your meals for the week, maybe take a long walk or get a full sweat in, or whatever! I find that my Sundays spent doing something for my own well-being lead into really productive weeks.

  1. Looks great, I can't wait to try it. I like the new format for serving size : 1 of 4: it's so helpful. Thanks!
  2. Cheryl Schroder :
    Just a quick question~are the bacon strips chopped into bite size pieces before sprinkling over the other ingredients? If so, what is the easiest way to cut the strips into smaller pieces?
  3. This looks so 'me'! Son does not like sweet potato (I do) and has a good relationship with butternut, so I don't have to ask! It is very hot summer here in Australia, but this will go down well... and I see it as an easy 'go-to! Thanks!
  4. Sheryl Langlois :
    Ali:This was DELISH!! I can't believe how great this dish was and I am always looking for a "bake" or casserole to have as a side. My husband (who is a diabetic) just said ," no need for the fun potatoes when you have this fun side!" Thank you girl, keep em commin!!
  5. I loved this! I have never had a dish like this for brunch OR dinner, but I already want to make it for dinner again next week. The butternut squash noodles added a slight sweetness that was balanced out by the brussels, smoky bacon, and spicy eggs. Thank you for this!
  6. Do you think this would work without the eggs? I can't eat them but this recipe sounds so yummy I want to try it.
