The ultimate fall and winter brunch! Ready in less than 30 minutes, this butternut squash hash with eggs is easy to whip up and perfect for the holidays!


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cups cubed butternut squash (1/2 inch-cubes)
  • 1 small or 1/2 medium to large onion, diced (about 1 cup diced)
  • 1 1/2 cups sliced mushrooms, roughly chopped (about 5 large mushrooms)
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon chopped thyme
  • 1 tablespoon chopped sage
  • 4 eggs
  • Optional: extra herbs for garnish


  1. In a cast iron pan, heat oil over medium heat.
  2. Add butternut squash and sauté until slightly browned, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add onion and mushrooms and sauté until mushrooms are browned and onions translucent, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  4. Stir in thyme and sage and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  5. Turn down heat to low. Using the back of a wooden spoon, create 4 small wells in the hash. Crack an egg into each of the wells.
  6. Cover the pan and cook until egg whites are set, about 7-10 minutes.
  7. Season with additional salt and pepper, to taste.
  8. Optional: garnish with extra chopped herbs.


  1. I love using the cast iron pan for hash because it’s well seasoned (basically nonstick) and allows you to get that crispy texture you want in a hash but if you don’t have one you can use a nonstick pan. I would stay away from stainless steel because the hash will be more likely to stick to the pan.
  2. If you don’t like mushrooms, you can use a different vegetable that strikes your fancy instead! I like using mushrooms here because it provides a meaty-like texture and flavor from the umami. If you use a different vegetable, consider sprinkling some parmesan cheese on top to give it that umami savory flavor.
  3. I served this with some whole-wheat toast but you could also serve it with some fruit on the side, a side of meat, or any other brunch goodies like muffins, bagels, etc.!
