Savory Bacon Butternut Hash

March 1, 2017

Happy Wednesday! After a long break away (so sorry – crazy busy rotations/life), I am back to regular posting and so excited about some amazing and fun new content coming your way! Is it just me, or are we all just ready to move on to spring? We had a taste of some glorious weather last week – Andrew and I were out walking in shorts! Gasp! Alas, we got dumped on with snow and spring seems far away now. Oh well. Welcome to Minnesota winters! Hopefully spring wins out this battle soon! So ready for outside games and exercise after so many months indoors!

I made this hash a few weeks ago and it was super delicious and packed with wholesome, nutritious food! It’s bursting with flavor and super foods! I know the recipe has lots of steps and requires a bunch of post-cooking dish washing. Lame – I know, but this recipe is so worth it! So yummy and so good for you. I had it alone as a meal, but it could totally work as a side. Let me know what your think!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

XOXO – Emily
