Ingredients and Directions


  1. Prepare pie crust according to package directions. If using homemade pie crust, par-bake for 15 minutes at 400˚ F before adding the filling.

  2. Peel and dice the butternut squash and arrange on a baking sheet. Drizzle lightly with olive oil and bake at 400˚ F for about 20 minutes, or until cooked through.

  3. In a small skillet over medium heat, lightly saute the sliced shallots in butter or olive oil until fragrant and slightly softened. Add in the spinach and fresh sage and continue to cook until the spinach is wilted. Remove from the heat and set aside.

  4. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, half and half, salt and pepper.

  5. Layer the cheese, roasted squash, and spinach in the bottom of the pie crust, then pour the egg mixture over the top.

  6. Bake at 350˚ F for 30-45 minutes or until the top is golden brown and the eggs are cooked through.

  7. Store in the fridge for up to 3 days.

To ensure food safety, eggs should be cooked until both the yolk and the white are firm. Consuming raw or undercooked eggs may increase your risk of foodborne illness, especially for those with certain medical conditions. For recipes that call for eggs that are raw or undercooked when the dish is served, use either pasteurized shell eggs that have been treated to destroy Salmonella, or use pasteurized egg products.
