Bacon Egg Veggie Skillet

1 large sweet onion, diced
1.5 lbs ground meat of your choice
3-4 cups butternut squash, diced small
5 oz fresh spinach, stems removed
1 lb bacon (Trader Joe’s has uncured bacon with no sugar added)

Method: preheat oven to 400°f. Lay bacon out on a baking sheet and cook in oven until crispy (sorry, didn’t pay attention to time for this). Heat a large skillet over medium high heat and caramelize onions in fat of your choice (I used bacon drippings). Add ground meat to onions and cook until browned. Remove meat and onions from pan and set aside. Add squash to pan and cook until tender. Add spinach and meat/onion mixture back to pan and stir to combine. Cook until spinach is wilted. Divide into 6 even portions and refrigerate. I dump my pre-portioned serving into a 6” cast iron skillet, crack an egg on top, and bake at 400°f for 20 minutes or until I have a solid white with a runny yoke.
