5-Ingredient Fall Butternut Ham Skillet makes a great simple, light meal anytime. It's fall in a bowl! 

Ingredients

Instructions

Heat a non-stick skillet over medium-high and spritz it with non-stick cooking spray.

Add the butternut with a pinch of salt to the skillet and leave it alone for a minute allowing the bottoms to caramelize. Toss and cook again for a minute before tossing. Repeat this process for 5 minutes. By this time the squash should have some nice color to it.

Add the ham and pumpkin pie spice. Toss together and repeat the same process as above waiting 1 minute before each toss. Allowing the ham to carmelize a little as well.

After 2-3 tosses with the ham, cover and lower the heat to medium-low. Let it continue to cook for 8-10 minutes until the squash softens. Try not to lift the cover so it has time to steam.

Scoop all the yummy goodness out of the skillet and enjoy!

Notes

  • I've been buying deli ham when it's on sale and asking them to cut me a thick slice or two just for recipes like this. It makes a great egg scramble/ omelet addition as well! 
  • If you have an electric stove you may want to lower the heat when you add the ham since it stays hot longer. I have gas so my temperature changes are immediate.
