Frittata’s are so versatile. You can enjoy them for breakfast, brunch, lunch or even dinner. What I love most about them is I can make them for dinner and serve the leftover’s for breakfast. It saves me a ton of time and puts a smile on everyone’s face. This frittata is packed with flavor and is so simple. Serve it with the butternut squash hash browns and you have everything you need to make a complete meal.

 This Frittata has amazing layers of flavor. The sharp cheddar cheese, sweet gala apples and the bacon take turns dancing on your pallet. And like I said before, it’s great reheated in the morning so you stretch your food and your time!

The Butternut Squash Hash Browns are the perfect replacement for the starchy counterpart. While not comparable to potatoes, the crispness of the squash delivers what is wanted from a popular morning offering. The hint of garlic powder gives these a delicious flavor that takes away the awkwardness for some that eating squash brings.

I love the idea of replacing the potato with the squash! I have never made a frittata, but looks so good!
