Cheesy Butternut Frittata
Are you looking for a perfect breakfast or brunch meal that will fill you up with wholesome goodness? Look no further than this Cheesy Butternut Frittata! A frittata can be prepared on the stove top or baked in the oven, normally in a pie plate, like a quiche. In this recipe, I used a 9 inch springform pan with a sweet potato hash brown crust, but using a pie plate is ok too!
I love combining unique combinations that are a bit unexpected. Using butternut squash in a frittata sounded amazing but I had a hard time figuring out how to make it look pretty without huge chunks in my puffy frittata top. One day it came to me as I was spiralizing zucchini… to spiralize the butternut squash. Bingo…pretty and delicious!
Are you drooling yet? This frittata would be perfect to bake while opening gifts during your holiday celebration! Let it fill your house with it’s warm, delicious aroma and when you are done with the gifts, it’s time to eat! It is so beautiful and looks so fancy pants, it could be served at a party. I would definitely impress your friends and family!
