You don’t have to miss out on your favorite childhood breakfast just because you’re paleo! Paleo Eggs in a Basket is made with spaghetti squash instead of the hashbrowns and you may love it even more than the original!

I’m doing that thing where I find a way to put spaghetti squash into every meal again.

I go through such weird stages with spaghetti squash. I haven’t cooked one in months but now it’s all I can think about and I’m roasting several a week.

I think I’ve had it in every single meal I’ve had for the last week.

These Paleo Eggs in a Nest are my current favorite way to have it and I wish I could say I’m only having it once a day at breakfast time but there have been days when I’ve made it 3 times. It’s becoming a problem.

It’s just so easy and so fast and so good for you!

Heeeey guys, happy Friday!

Can I tell you about the first time I ever got a mean comment on this blog?

It was my Ranch Mac and Cheese from 2010 because yes, I have been blogging my entire life. And the comment was from a man, along the lines of Italian grandmother’s rolling over in their graves.

So I called my then husband in tears because omg, I had offended someone with my mac and cheese. And should I just take the post down? Should I respond to the guy and apologize? Should I just leave the internet forever?

No, I am not dramatic at all.

But you guys, when that comment came through, I was literally waiting for a car I didn’t arrange to pick me up for a flight I didn’t pay for so that I could go to Minneapolis to bake in the Betty Crocker Kitchens with some of my favorite bloggers.

It was my first big blogging trip and I’d never been more excited for anything in my life. Why was I so worried about some random internet guy who was offended by pasta?

But yeah, I’m telling you this because I still brace myself any time I take a classic food and make it a little weird because of that one jerk that decided to leave a nasty comment 7 years ago.

Y’all don’t even want to know the comments I got after those Cubano Tacos.

English Muffin Breakfast Pizzas - easy, healthy, and delicious breakfast idea!


Let’s talk breakfast.

You know I do this every September.

I’m over cereal. I have 3 boys – do you know how much cereal we go through? And it’s kind of expensive.

So I am officially on the hunt for easy, quick breakfast. Did I mention they need to be easy? And quick?

Yeah, easy and quick.

If there is one thing that my husband and I agree on, it’s our love of deviled eggs.

And lucky for us, deviled eggs are one of the easiest things to make paleo. I mean, they are basically paleo to begin with unless you are one of those people that puts salad dressing in them (me!) or… well, I’m not really sure what other non-paleo things people put in deviled eggs. Because I am a creature of habit and I make the same recipe every single time.

So this paleo deviled eggs recipe is the one I make when we are following the paleo diet. I have been known to make a dozen of them (24 halves) every day for my husband and I to have for lunch. And he has been known to eat the entire dozen himself if I’m not quick enough.

My husband is completely obsessed with these eggs. I don’t even think obsessed covers how he feels about them. He has abandoned taking his lunch to work and instead, he texts me every day about an hour before lunch to nicely ask if I’ll whip up a batch of these guys.

They couldn’t be easier to make and it’s 100% certain you have all the ingredients on hand. I’ve been known to decrease the recipe to 2 or 3 eggs if I’m just making it for myself, so don’t feel like you have to make a huge batch. You can definitely make a good little lunch out of a couple deviled eggs and a salad!

For the mayo, don’t use the stuff from your local grocery store. Even the “all natural” mayos have canola oil, so either make your own or specifically order paleo mayo. I make my own with avocado oil and it is SO perfect.

Breakfast Stuffed Acorn Squash - healthy and delicious breakfast! Roasted acorn squash filled with sausage and topped with an egg!

I am forever looking for new breakfast ideas for myself. I’m not really into typical breakfast foods first thing in the morning (but I love a cinnamon roll in the afternoon or pancakes for dinner) and a girl can only have so many breakfast salads before she starts to lose it.

This Breakfast Stuffed Acorn Squash is my new favorite and I’m going through withdrawals right now because Trader Joe’s was out of acorn squash the other day and I’m refusing to go to any other grocery stores until the excitement of TJ’s wears off.

Life is rough.

Breakfast Stuffed Acorn Squash!

And I know you think I’m nuts and you think squash for breakfast is a horrible idea.

But trust me, this is so good.

It’s just cooked acorn squash with turkey breakfast sausage, onion, garlic, and an egg on top. And then when you’re ready to eat you mash it all together and dump a ton of sriracha on top and you’ve got a healthy, delicious breakfast that’s full of protein and good carbs. Plus, it’s just fun to eat straight out of a squash!

I prepped this one night while binge watching Once Upon a Time (which I always thought sounded super lame but I’m addicted) and it was so nice to wake up the next couple of mornings and not have to worry about breakfast. I just popped a half in the microwave and sat down to eat!

Breakfast Stuffed Acorn Squash

Servings: 2 servings
  • 1 acorn squash cut in half, seeds removed
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil or olive oil
  • 1/2 lean turkey breakfast sausage
  • ½ onion diced
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Preheat oven to 375F.
  2. Place acorn squash cut-side down onto your baking sheet. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until your acorn squash is soft when you press on the skin. Remove from oven and let cool.
  3. While your acorn squash is cooking, add coconut oil to a large skillet over medium heat. Add breakfast sausage and cook, breaking it up, until almost no pink remains. Add onion and continue cooking until the sausage is cooked completely and the onion is translucent. Add garlic and cook another 30 seconds. Remove from heat.
  4. Spoon the sausage mixture into the cooked acorn squash halves and make a whole in the center for the egg. Crack an egg into each side of the acorn squash and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  5. Bake another 10 - 15 minutes or until the eggs are cooked to your preference.
