About 17,000 years ago, I posted a recipe for Acorn Squash Egg-in-the-Hole

One fine morning, I was itching for something a little different for breakfast. Still clean and filling…just…different. The acorn squash egg-in-the-hole jumped into my mind’s eye, and then I became even more creative. What if I do the same thing, but with spaghetti squash??

I am, after all, wholeheartedly obsessed with the squash o’ spaghet.

The way I see it, these Spaghetti Squash Egg Nests are a fun changeup to the morning ush, regardless of your age. I don’t have kids, but if I did, I imagine I’d be making these on the reg!

They are both fun and easy to prepare. PLUS, there’s plenty of room to changeup the approach to make these nests your own.

Let’s nestle in!

How to Make Spaghetti Squash Egg Nests:

Begin by roasting 1 medium or large spaghetti squash. To do so, follow my instructions on How to Roast Spaghetti Squash. You can do this step the same day you make the nests, or up to 5 days in advance! 

Once your spaghetti squash is roasted, cooled, and “spaghettied,” make your nests! 

Start by preheating the oven to 425 degrees F.

Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Grab some of the spaghetti squash and form it into a circle, leaving a hole in the center for the egg. Try to leave no gaps in the “nest” so that the egg stays in the center and doesn’t leak out (although it’s totally cool if it does…perfection is for squares!)

Carefully crack an egg into the center of the spaghetti squash. Sprinkle the spaghetti squash and egg with some sea salt and dried herbs. Repeat for remaining spaghetti squash.

Bake on the center rack of the preheated oven 15 to 25 minutes, until the egg whites are completely set up. 

Serve with hot sauce, green onion, and/or fresh parsley and enjoy!

Recipe Adaptations:

  • Cheese lover? Consider mixing parmesan cheese into the spaghetti squash and/or sprinkling the nests with your favorite cheese. Feta cheese would be amazing for sprinkling on top!
  • Bacon lover? Cook up some bacon, chop it up, and sprinkle it on top of the nests.

Start nesting!
