Ingredients:
500 g butternut, cut into 2 cm cubes
olive oil for drizzling
salt and pepper
a few thyme sprigs
200 g streaky bacon
1 large onion, finely sliced
15 ml butter and 5 ml olive oil
10 ml balsamic vinegar
300 g baby spinach
100 g goat’s cheese or danish feta, sliced
250 ml grated cheddar cheese
250 ml full cream milk
4 large eggs
10 ml psyllium husks (helps absorb excess moisture from veggies to prevent a soggy frittata – you can replace with 30 ml cake flour)

Method:
Preheat the oven to 180 Degrees Celsius.
Scatter the butternut cubes and thyme on a lightly greased baking tray, drizzle with olive oil and season. Roast for 20 – 25 minutes. Set aside.
Place the bacon rashers onto a rack of a roasting tray and roast for 25 – 30 minutes or until crispy. Once cooled, dice the bacon.
Heat the butter and olive oil in a small heavy based pot ( I use AMC Cookware’s 16 cm Gourmet High saucepan) and gently fry the onions and balsamic over moderate heat until softened and caramelized.
Steam the spinach until just wilted, rinse immediately in ice cold water then squash as much liquid out of the spinach as possible. Chop finely.
Line a 20 cm x 30 cm baking tray with baking paper.
Place the roasted butternut, bacon, caramelised onion, spinach, goat’s cheese and half of the cheddar in the baking tray. Make sure the ingredients are evenly scattered.
Whisk the milk, eggs and psyllium husks together and season with salt and pepper.
Pour the egg mixture over the ingredients. Top with remaining cheddar.
Bake for +- 30 minutes or until set and golden.
Allow to cool for 10 minutes before removing from the tray and slicing into portions.
