Equipment

  • Spiralizer

Ingredients

  • 5 eggs room temperature
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 Tbsp light oil canola or vegetable
  • 1/2 butternut squash spiralized
  • 1 large clove of garlic minced
  • 2 Tbsp butter unsalted
  • 3 Tbsp fresh sage chopped
  • 1/4 cup goat cheese crumbled
  • 2 strips bacon cooked and crumbled
  • nonstick cooking spray
  • arugula micro greens or other micro greens for serving

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350F. Combine eggs, cream, and milk in a large mixing bowl. Season with ½ Tbsp salt and ¼ tsp pepper. Set aside.

  • Heat canola or vegetable oil over medium-high heat in a large nonstick pan. Add spiralized squash, season with ½ tsp salt, then cook, stirring often, until tender. Timing will depend on which setting you use on the spirazlier and how thick the squash is, but at least 7-10 minutes, with thicker cuts of squash requiring longer cook time. Add minced garlic and cook for another 30 seconds, just until fragrant.

  • In small sauce pan melt butter over medium-high heat. When butter begins to brown, about 2 minutes in, add the chopped sage. Swirl the pan once, then remove from heat and let cool slightly.

  • Add goat cheese, crumbled bacon, and sage browned butter to the egg mixture, then whisk to combine.
  • Spray quiche, tart, or pie dish with nonstick cooking spray. The quiche pan in this recipe is 10" x 1 ½ ". Lay the pieces of cooked butternut squash in the pan, covering the base as fully as possible -- totally okay if pieces overlap! Pour the egg mixture on top, then bake for 40-45 minutes, or until quiche is just set in the middle. Let cool slightly, then slice and serve with arugula micro greens, if using.

Notes

  • Bacon: turkey bacon can substitute traditional bacon.
  • If you don't have a spiralizer, use a mandoline to thinly slice butternut squash into 1/8" rounds OR cube the butternut squash into ½" dice. Cook as directed on the stove top until softened and tender throughout. Timing may very, but pay attention to the texture, that's what matters. BUT ALSO!! You can buy spiralized vegetables at many larger grocery stores, so be on the lookout next time you're shopping!
  • To freeze: butternut squash and goat cheese quiche can be completely baked and sliced ahead of time, then frozen. Cool to room temperature,  then wrap sliced quiche in plastic wrap and a layer of heavy aluminum foil. Will keep in freezer for up to 6 months.
  • To reheat from frozen: allow quiche to defrost overnight in a refrigerator OR place frozen quiche in a preheated oven to 350F and heat until warm, about  15 minutes.
