The hardest thing about this recipe is peeling the squash. I've tried different ways to peel it but I keep going back to my trusty sharp paring knife.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 slices bacon, cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 small butternut squash, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch slices
  • 12 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 18 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 cups firmly packed baby spinach leaves


  1. Cook bacon in a 12 inch skillet over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until it is crisp.
  2. Stir in onion and cook about 2 minutes until it is crisp-tender.
  3. Stir in squash, thyme and pepper.
  4. Cover and cook 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until squash is tender.
  5. Stir in spinach until just wilted.

My family ate this whole dish Christmas day!!! I used a potato peeler to peel the squash and it worked fine. :-)

This is a really nice way to have pumpkin, I also added some mushrooms to bulk it up a little but was lovely & simple & we will be making this again, thanks!
