Butternut Bacon Browns (AIP/Paleo) are a nutrient dense alternative to regular hash browns. So tasty, you might like them better!
When I first began this new way of eating, breakfast required the biggest mental shift. What’s a girl to do without her scrambled eggs, or peanut butter toast?! If you find yourself in this position, I invite you to think differently. We eat the same ol’ breakfast because it’s what we know.
If you can shift your thinking about what constitutes a “normal” breakfast, you may be surprised by what you find. It can be comforting to have a nourishing soup for breakfast. It can feel like brunch if you have a salad. You might find that a hearty, veggie-heavy breakfast can sustain you better than pancakes. It just takes re-thinking what we’re used to.
Helpful hints about this recipe
Butternut squash will not hold together as well as potatoes, and there are some sugars in it. It is really helpful to not fuss with the browns once they’re in the pan. Just turn them in sections, only once.
Also, for grating that big ol’ squash, use a large box grater. Angle the squash downward, rather than holding it parallel to your countertop. You’ll have more surface area and more leverage.
