These BUTTERNUT SQUASH EGG NESTS are such a fun whole-30 approved fall breakfast mix-up. I love butternut squash and love finding ways to incorporate it into recipes. One of my favorite whole-30 approved, gluten-free, paleo, dairy-free, and sugar-free ways to start the day packed with protein and healthy fats.
I’ve been playing around with zoodle egg nests for a while and love how fancy they look while not being too complicated to whip up. I purchased my butternut squash noodles pre-spiralized which saved me time in the kitchen.
You can either buy your butternut squash pre-spiralized or use one of the following of my favorite tools to create your own veggie noodles:
- Veggetti ($10 on Amazon)
- Handheld Spiralizer ($15 on Amazon – Personal Fave)
- Spiralizer 5-Blade Vegetable Slicer ($21 on Amazon)
- Veggie Co. Noodled Butternut Noodles (Often found in Whole Foods or Target)
What is fun about this breakfast combo is that you can mix it up with other veggies such as sweet potato, zucchini, parsnip, spaghetti squash, etc. and they all turn out so yum!
Serve the nests up with some sliced avocado (healthy fats), hemp seeds (for extra protein), and sprinkled pepper flakes for the perfect savory breakfast.
