This Sheet Pan Butternut Squash Breakfast Hash with apples and spinach recipe is a quick, easy and hearty egg-free breakfast. It’s dairy-free, gluten-free, paleo and AIP-friendly.


Units Scale
  • 1 lb ground pork, chicken, or turkey
  • 3 TBSP olive oil, divided
  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1.5 tsp sea salt, divided
  • 1/4 tsp ground sage
  • 1/2 tsp dried rosemary
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes (omit for AIP)
  • 1 small-medium butternut squash, peeled and cut into 1/4-inch cubes (about 3 cups)
  • 1 medium apple, diced (any variety)
  • 3 cups spinach or other leafy green, roughly chopped
  • fresh herbs for garnish (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 425F.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together ground meat, 1 TBSP olive oil, onion, garlic, 1 tsp sea salt, sage, rosemary, thyme, garlic powder, onion powder, and red pepper flakes (if using)*. Set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine cubed butternut squash, apple and spinach and toss with remaining 2 TBSP olive oil and 1/2 tsp sea salt.
  4. Distribute the contents of both bowls in one even layer across one large or two medium-sized sheet pans, lined with parchment paper.
  5. Bake in the middle rack of the oven for 20-25 minutes, giving the mixture a stir halfway through baking.**
  6. Adjust for salt to taste.
  7. Garnish with fresh herbs to serve (optional).


*Omit red pepper flakes for AIP diet.

**Don’t skip this step! This will help the butternut squash cook evenly and prevent anything from charring too much.
