fall skillet

Make dinner easy and keep dish washing to a minimum with this all-in-one, one-skillet meal made with in-season brussels & butternut squash.

If you are like me, you like to keep weeknight meals quick, easy and nutritious. One-skillet meals check all those boxes.

I love using my cast iron skillet for one-skillet meals and desserts. It’s super versatile and lasts forever. The 8-inch skillet is great investment if you are single or live with a partner.

This one-skillet meal is made with fall produce. 

Brussels sprouts and butternut squash are officially in season and pair with the earthy taste of ground beef with thyme. This is a good combination of your carbohydrates (butternut squash is a starchy veggie) and protein. If you are looking to add a little more staying power, feel free to add leftover quinoa.
