Father’s Day is this weekend and if you’re like me you want to do something thoughtful for your hubby, but your exhausted because let’s face it, #momlife. Enter one of the easiest breakfast ever that looks like you put a lot more effort into it than you actually did. Winwin for everyone, am I right?
I can’t believe I’m just discovering sheet pan meals now because they are SO. DANG.EASY. Basically you throw a bunch of ingredients on a pan and wait for them to be done cooking. Okay it’s a little more complicated then that, but that the gist of it. To make it pretty, arrange all the items you are using in a cool design. For this breakfast meal, I used sausage, bacon, butternut squash, and eggs. You can definitely make this with potatoes or other veggies, you might just have to adjust the cooking time slightly.
But before I share this recipe, I just wanted to talk about these new spices I tried. They are called Balanced Bites and they are by Diane Sanfilippo who is a culinary genius and all around rockstar in life. The Balanced Bites Trifecta blend is genius because it combines the three spices I use most often and find to be the most versatile (salt, black pepper, and garlic powder). This way you only have to reach for one bottle instead of three. I’ve also been trying the Super Garlic blend (more on that later) and can’t wait to try the other Balanced Bite spices. You can purchase them here. I also use paprika because that’s kind of my secret weapon for certain foods. Breakfast is one of those foods that needs just a little more flavor and then BOOM you are all set.
So make this easy breakfast for your Dad/husband/brother/token male figure in your life or even for yourself. You can thank me later.
- 1/2 pound ground turkey sausage
- 4-6 pieces bacon
- 5-7 eggs (depending on how many people you are feeding)
- 1 cup spiralized butternut squash
- 1 tsp Balanced Bites Trifecta (Or mix together salt, pepper, and garlic powder)
- 1 tsp paprika
- Preheat over to 400 degrees.
- Line baking pan with parchment paper.
- Crumble sausage and arrange sausage and bacon slices on baking pan.
- Bake bacon and sausage for 10 minutes.
- Remove pan from oven and add butternut squash; leave room for eggs.
- Use a brush to wipe some of the fat from the bacon sausage to coat the butternut squash. This will keep it from browning and drying up too much.
- Return pan back to oven for another 10 minutes.
- Remove pan, add eggs to the pan, preferably between all other ingredients (think little nests for the eggs).
- Sprinkle Trifecta and paprika over entire pan.
- Return to over for about 10 more minutes (or until eggs are cooked to your liking).
