Butternut Squash + Greens Egg Bake

This post is sponsored by Nature’s Greens, but all opinions are my own.

This egg bake is the perfect make-ahead breakfast! It is made with nutrient dense greens, butternut squash, and protein rich eggs.

An egg bake is one of those dishes that looks fancy, but it is actually incredibly simple to make! It comes down to 3 steps:

  1. Cook the vegetables until just under well done.
  2. Whisk eggs
  3. Add the eggs and vegetables together and bake.

In this recipe, I used Nature’s Greens Mustard greens which have a great flavor. If you would rather use a different leafy green, Nature’s Greens has a full line of organic greens that can easily be substituted. I love that I was able to find them at my local Walmart!

I hope you enjoy this recipe! If you make it, be sure to tag me on Instagram @wildlywholesome and hashtag #wildlymindful so that I can see it!
