Cheesy Squash Bites: {Meatless} Monday Meal

A few months ago, I got it into my head that I wanted to create a cross between a muffin and a frittata. So, I began playing around with ingredient ratios and flavor combinations and did lots and lots of recipe testing. Now, after some trial and error, voila: I present to you my Cheesy Squash Bites!







Heat the oven to 325° and either grease or line a mini muffin tin.

Mix the flour, spices and rosemary in a large bowl.

Stir in the whisked eggs, cheeses, butternut squash purée and pumpkin chunks.

Mix so it is all combined.

Fill the mini muffin tins and bake for 20 minutes. Turn off the oven and let the bites sit for an additional 2 minutes.

Remove to a cooling rack and let cool slightly before enjoying.


Did Eliana like it? Yes. But, that was after much careful inspection. She had to examine it, take out a few pieces of squash (only to eat at least some of them a few minutes later) and then finally taste it and declare, “It’s good, Mommy!”

Totally Toddler Taste Testing in progress


Happy Cooking!
