Ingredients
  • 1 teaspoon unsalted butter
  • 2 cups spiralized butternut squash
  • 3 cups organicgirl baby spinach
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup 2% milk
  • 1/2 cup shredded lowfat Cheddar cheese, divided
Directions
  1. Preheat broiler.
  2. Heat butter in medium non-stick, oven-safe skillet over medium heat, making sure to coat pan. Add butternut squash and cook 5-6 minutes. Add spinach and season with salt and pepper. Continue to cook 2-3 minutes, tossing vegetables together gently, until spinach is wilted.
  3. While vegetables cook, whisk eggs and milk in a bowl. Stir in ¼ cup shredded cheese.
