Is butternut squash healthy for weight loss?

A traditional breakfast hash is typically made with potatoes, but swapping out the potatoes for butternut squash provides a lighter version that still maintains that classic savory flavor. In addition, the butternut squash adds a sweetness to the dish that perfectly complements the savory sausage and red pepper. You can also make this hash with a variety of vegetables, such as mushrooms for added umami and color. Eggs are a wonderful addition to this hash for additional protein and a boost of healthy fats.

This recipe is easy to prepare and can be easily made ahead for a quick and delicious meal during the week. You can even roast the butternut squash, onions, and peppers the night before to save time. This dish would be a great choice for breakfast or brunch and can be served with a side of toast or a toasted bagel to complete the meal.

If you’re not a fan of sausage, you can always substitute it for ground beef or turkey bacon for a healthier option that still adds an incredible amount of protein and savory flavor to the dish. You can also make this hash vegan by omitting the bacon or adding some chopped up cooked portobello mushroom instead. Regardless of what you choose to use, this Butternut Squash Hash is sure to be a hit at any mealtime!
