In my house we’re all about breakfast, especially when it can be made in one pan.

During the summer months, there is a plethora of fresh produce grown right here in the Midwest. Heinen’s always has the pick of the crop, so after visiting their produce department, I felt particularly inspired to make this Summer Squash Breakfast Bake.

Packed full of flavorful butternut squash, crispy kale and vine-ripened tomatoes, this healthy recipe will have you feeling ready to take on the summer!

Summer Squash Breakfast Bake


  • 2-3 packages of tomatoes-on-the-vine
  • 3-4 ears of corn, shucked off of the cob
  • 2 cups of kale, chopped
  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 lb. butternut squash, peeled, seeded and chopped
  • Olive oil, for drizzling
  • 1 Tbsp. each chopped fresh thyme, basil, oregano and parsley
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. fresh cracked pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper


  1. Line a baking sheet with foil and preheat the oven to 400°F.
  2. On the lined baking sheet, mix all of the ingredients together, except for the kale, with 3 Tbsp. of olive oil. Be sure to leave the tomatoes on the vine and mix gently so they remain intact.
  3. Toss the kale with the olive oil separately and set aside.
  4. Place the tray of vegetables into the preheated oven for 22 minutes, adding the kale halfway through.
  5. Don’t be shy with the kale; I recommend sticking some under the other vegetables. Be sure to use gloves when doing this as the tray and veggies will be hot.
  6. When the cook time is over, remove the pan from the oven, toss with extra parsley and cheese, if desired, and serve with toast.
