I love making eggs in a hole on the weekend but was thinking the other day about a festive, less carb centric way to enjoy one and thought–why not use the ring of a delicate squash instead of bread? And so I did.
The delicata squash I had was a little on the small side, but I still absolutely love the way these turned out. Wouldn’t they be great for a fancy post-Thanksgiving brunch?
I’m definitely all for quick and easy recipes that look so much fancier than they are!
Egg in a Squash Hole
1 delicata squash round, seeds removed (about 1/4 inch thick)
Heat olive oil in a small frying pan over medium heat.
Add squash round. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and rosemary, and cook for 2-3 minutes
Crack egg into the center of the squash hole. Cook for 2-3 minutes, until white becomes to cook through and then flip.
Season again with salt, pepper, and rosemary and continue to cook until all of the white is cooked through.
Remove from heat and enjoy!
Time: 8 minutes
