Fall Frittata - Butternut Squash, Kale, Bacon and Goat Cheese
Paired with 2016 Heritage Vines Zinfandel - Dry Creek Valley
A delicious and seasonal fall frittata made with butternut squash, kale, bacon and goat cheese paired perfectly with Dry Creek Vineyard 2016 Heritage Vines Zinfandel. Recipe inspiration from Coley Cooks.
- 5 slices bacon, diced
- 1 shallot, sliced
- 4 cups (loosely packed) raw kale, hard stems removed
- 2 cups butternut squash, cubed
- 8 eggs
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- black pepper to taste
- 4 oz goat cheese
Preheat the oven to 400°F.
Season cubed squash with salt and pepper to taste, place on a nonstick baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes or until tender.
While the squash bakes, cook diced bacon in an oven-safe pan (cast iron is ideal). Cook for 5 minutes or until the bacon is a little crispy. Add shallots and cook 2-3 minutes or until translucent and just starting to brown. Next add kale with a splash of water and toss for a few minutes. Then cover with a lid and allow to steam for 2-3 minutes or until tender. Remove the lid and add the cooked squash until warmed thoroughly.
Crack the eggs in a bowl and whisk with salt and pepper. Pour the eggs over the vegetables and use a spatula to spread evenly. Crumble the goat cheese over the top, then place the pan in the oven for 10-15 minutes, until puffed up and golden on the outside. Check the inside by poking a toothpick in the center. If it’s still runny, place back in the oven for a few more minutes.
Allow to rest for 5-10 minutes before slicing. Serve warm or at room temperature with a glass of Dry Creek Vineyard Heritage Vines Zinfandel. Serves 6.
