Today I decided to share with you one of my favorite autumn breakfast – butternut squash curry omelette. Maybe it sounds a little bit unusual, but this is not something that you would be eating every day. And since it is October, the month of squashes and pumpkins, I think it is a great time to try something new for a change. Am I right?
Why I Love Butternut Squash?
I like all sorts of squashes and pumpkins, but butternut squash is definitely my favorite one. It has such a great flavor that you can use to enrich a great variety of dishes, including savory and sweet recipes. It is not too sweet, like most of the squashes are, and it can be combined with a big number of spice mixes, like pumpkin spice mix, curry mix, Italian seasoning mix, and much much more.
Butternut Squash Omelette
One morning, a few years back, I wanted to make something special just for me. I opened my fridge and I saw my baked butternut squash sitting in the airtight container, waiting for me to use it. In order not to make a big mess in the kitchen, I decided that I should try to make an omelette with it. I was also thinking that curry spice would give it a delicious spicy flavor, and my God I was right! And I have been making that exact omelette during the fall season since.

Baked Butternut Squash
As I said, I use the baked butternut squash that I try to always have in the fridge during the fall. It is so easy to make, that you won’t even notice. All you have to do is turn on the oven to 200°C (400°F) and place the whole butternut squash on baking sheet and straight to the oven. Baking time depends on the size of your butternut squash, but usually, it takes about an hour. You will know it is done when the skin is very soft to touch and the inserted knife is going through the flash easily (like through the butter). Let it cool down, and then place it into an airtight container and use it in any dish you want, sweet or savory.
I don’t throw anything away. I use the skin in salads because it has fine nutty flavor and is very soft, and I even make seasoned seeds for a snack. Great huh?
