Looking for a new breakfast recipe to try? I am going to show you how to make this maple bacon butternut squash hash! With a Paleo & Whole 30 option.
Course Breakfast
Keyword squash, paleo, whole 30, breakfast, fall
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 4 People


  • 1 Medium Fresh Butternut Squash cubed and skin removed
  • 1 Medium Yellow Onion diced
  • 1/2 lb Bacon
  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper
  • 2 oz Water
  • 1/2 Cup Organic Maple Syrup


  1. In a deep large skillet add the bacon, squash, onion, pepper, and water. 

  2. Cover with lid and cook on high heat for 5 minutes.

  3. Reduce heat to medium and cook for another 5 minutes.

  4. Remove lid and add in the maple syrup and stir it around. Then replace lid and cook 5 more minutes on medium heat.

  5. Now remove the lid and turn the heat back up to high and cook for about another 5 minutes, stirring often until squash is tender and bacon is to your crisp liking.

  6. Strain off any extra grease (I did not have much from the bacon I used) and then serve.

Recipe Notes

If wanting to stay away from maple syrup you can leave out totally (to fit Whole 30 diet) or replace with 1/4 cup organic raw honey for a Paleo option.
