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.

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!
Cheryl Schroder says:
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?
Beth R says:
Same question
Joan Westaway says:
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!
Sheryl Langlois says:
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!!
Melissa says:
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!
Beth Wilkins says:
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.
Maureen Quarles says:
Love, love, love your Inspralizer over the “other”one that has been gathering dust in our storage room for months. Spiralizing butternut squash was SO incredibly easy and clean up was amazingly quick, thank you! I made this dish for breakfast and substituted sweet Italian chicken sausage because I did not have any bacon. It was so good, three teenage boys gobbled down 3/4 of it! I had to take it away from them so my husband and I could have some! Zero leftovers!
Meaghan says:
That is a total win! Thank you so much for your support.
Maureen Quarles says:
Auto correct fail, sorry! I know it’s Inspiralizer. No way to edit..
Nicci says:
This was fantastic! Even my picky 13 year old enjoyed it. We like bacon so we used more than called for. I omitted the egg and sprinkled the red pepper flakes on the whole thing for an extra kick! Upon serving I also sprinkled with a little mozzerella and parmesean cheese. I like the idea of adding chicken sausage or maybe some crumbled turkey to make it a little more filling. Quick tip - I noticed the butternut squash cooks down a lot so a seeming full pan before baking will end up to be only about 1/2 a pan after its cooked. Plan accordingly if you are serving lots of people. Thanks for the great recipe!

Thanks for sharing! This is a total win!
awis_linda_lifestyle, OK, I used to be Instagram-famous, too. If you are like me, you've trawled Instagram, thinking "how do these darn people get so famous"? Imagine: it is Friday morning and you’ve promised yourself you’d hit the gym today. Roll over, check your phone. Navigate your way to your page. Whoaaa, you think, Over 1000 likes on a single picture. You put your soft slippers on and head to the kitchen for some coffee. After putting on the kettle, you pull out your phone again. Presto! Another 49 likes. Here comes another one. This time it is not a like but a message from one of your followers. They congratulate you on your success and let you know they adore waking up to your content. The kettle blows and you pour your tea. When you flip out your phone, there is another message--this time from a young girl--thanking you for posting. She follows you religiously and your'e an inspiration. As you begin to respond, your phone buzzes again. Wow, ANOTHER message. You close your phone and throw it in the bag. Time for the gym. Listen, awis_linda_lifestyle, most people just aren't in control of their life. Seriously, they can’t even force themselves to have a balanced breakfast, much less hit the gym. I’m here to show you how to take the reigns of your Instagram. Imagine if you could raise your engagement by 100%, or 1000%? It is not difficult to do, although almost no one does. Just hit up our website. There, you'll learn how to garner Instagram likes and followers like mad...without even trying. Automagically see tons of likes on your images just minutes after posting. If you are anything like our other valued compadres, you will have a great chance of hitting the "Top Post" section in a very short time. This is all great, but you've really got to put in the work to make it happen. OK, you got me, it is not real work. 1. Visit 2. Put in your Instagram username. 3. 10 - 15 likes will be sent to your 3 most recent pictures. Just like that. Hitting the Top Post page will 10X your Instafame. But you have got to do more than just want it--you've got to do something about it. Are you willing? Chow for now.

you know what keeps me up at night? 🥺 the gut-wrenching mom guilt from worrying that this time is going to fly by (it is!) and I’m going to look back and wish I had made more one on one time with each my kids when they wanted it! it’s so hard to separate my time, and I’ll admit that I’m not great at finding ways and the right moments to do it. mamas out there who have 2 or more, what do you do to get more individual time with each of your kids?
