Here's a unique way to serve eggs! If your squash are large, feel free to crack two eggs into each squash half for extra protein. You can also use the same prep method with scooped out delicata squash or bell pepper halves. Serve with a mixed green salad for a complete meal.

Ingredients

uncooked acorn squash

2 small, halved lengthwise, seeds removed

cooking spray

2 spray(s)

kosher salt

½ tsp, or to taste

black pepper

¼ tsp, freshly ground or to taste

dried oregano

¼ tsp

egg(s)

4 medium

roasted red peppers (packed in water)

½ cup(s), diced

crumbled feta cheese

¼ cup(s)

dill

1 tsp, fresh, minced

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425ºF. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Cut a thin slice off bottom of each squash half so it sits flat. Place squash halves, cut side up, on prepared pan and coat with cooking spray; sprinkle with salt, pepper, and oregano. Roast until squash are just tender and a paring knife can pierce flesh without much resistance, about 25 minutes.
  3. Sprinkle squash halves with more salt and pepper (optional); crack an egg into each one. Evenly divide peppers over top.
  4. Return squash to oven; bake until eggs are set to your liking, about 15 minutes for a still-runny yolk and up to 20 for a set yolk. Sprinkle each with 1 Tbsp feta and some dill. Serve immediately.
  5. Serving size: 1 squash half
