Egg In The Hole With Acorn Squash

By : paleopaparazzi 0 Comments

Did you know that September is Better Breakfast Month!? Kids are finally heading back to school, summer is coming to an end and no matter what stage of life you happen to be in, September often comes with a new routine and an attempt to make better choices – making a conscious effort towards a better breakfast with quality ingredients is one of those choices. I try to challenge myself to prepare better breakfasts for this busy month that will give me all the nutrients and fuel I need to crush my day!

I used to love egg in the hole as a kid but I used to eat it with standard white bread, which I can’t eat anymore, so I decided to do a spin on this classic recipe by using acorn squash in place of the bread to make a lower carb version with protein packed Happy Eggs. I bumped it up just a notch to make it that much better for my body and my energy levels!

In this recipe I’m using Happy Egg Free Range Blue & Brown Heritage Breed EggsTM, I mean just look at those beautiful plump, amber yolks! The first time I laid eyes on them, no pun intended, I fell head over heels! You can tell by the color of their yolks that the hens are enjoying a nutrient rich diet, getting some of that diet from the over 8-acres of pasture which they happily roam on year round. 

These eggs are truly Farmer’s Market quality, which is great because you can find them at your supermarket. Plus, I love that they are now available at Walmart in Denver! If you’re outside Denver, head to the store locator on Happyegg.co to find a retailer nearest you. Believe me, you want to get your hands on these beautiful eggs! They come from two distinct breeds of hens and have rich, plump amber yolks leading to deliciously-beautiful dishes, wholesome recipes and better tasting, creamier eggs.
