Ingredients

For Crust:
2 cups Annie's Cheddar Squares, crushed
12 Tbsp salted butter, melted
5 Tbsp whole wheat flour
For Egg Mixture:
2 cups butternut squash, peeled, cubed, pre-cooked
1 lg red bell pepper, diced
1/2 lb asparagus (about 10 stalks,) ends removed, diced
8 oz can of black olives, sliced
12 eggs
1/2 Tbsp Gourmet Gardens Garlic
1/2 Tbsp Gourmet Gardens Basil
1/2 Tbsp Gourmet Gardens Oregano
1 tsp dried diced onions
1 tsp Gourmet Gardens chili pepper (add more or less depending the spice level you like.)
Salt and Pepper to taste
2 cups shredded Castello Havarti Cheese (hold 1/2 cup back to add to top of egg bake.)

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease casserole dish or 9 x 13 pan.

Melt butter in sauce pan on medium heat, and sit aside

Crush Annie's cheese squares. Mix together cheese squares, melted butter, and whole wheat flour. Press cheesy crust around sides of pan and bottom.

Partially cook butternut squash in sauce pan over medium heat, just until almost fork tender.

In medium bowl, whisk together eggs, cheese, herbs, garlic, onion, chili pepper, salt, and pepper.

Add partially cooked butternut squash on top of crust, then add diced red bell pepper, diced asparagus, and sliced black olives.

Next add the egg mixture into pan, and carefully stir around vegetables to ensure everything is incorporated.

(If you use casserole dish) bake for about 1hr and 15 mins, depending on oven.

(If you use 9x13 pan) bake for about 40-45 mins, depending on oven.

Add remaining 1/2 cup cheese to top of egg bake, place back in oven to melt cheese, then remove.

Enjoy!

Notes

If you choose to use a deep casserole dish, it will take longer to completely cook the egg in the center. Using a 9 X13 pan will spread the egg out, and take less time to cook the egg bake.

  • Is this a quiche? And you are right about butternut squash being fantastic in just about anything! This bake has such a gorgeous autumn colours.
    • Hi Angie!!! I guess it could be a quiche. For me, a hearty egg dish like this feels more like an egg bake. Especially when served in a larger pan. We almost added meat, which would really make it hearty and filling. Hope you are doing well! Hugs, Terra

    I like Annie's products too because they don't add all the extra stuff you don't need. The mac and cheese is great for my son who loves mac and cheese.

    We have tried many Annies products, from the mac-n-cheese and crackers to the salad dressings and frozen pizzas. The frozen pizzas especially are just as good as the non-organic varieties.

    Butternut, acorn, whatever -- they're all good! And this recipe is such a great way to showcase butternut squash. Great stuff -- thanks.
  • Isn't it great moving from summer squash to winter squash! Both are so versatile but you've really done something different with butternut in this egg bake. Great idea to use the crust. I've seen Annie's products but have never used one. Look like some good healthy products.
