Acorn squash rings make the perfect container for baked eggs in a hole. This is a delicious way to enjoy sweet roasted acorn squash for breakfast.


  • 1 acorn squash (4 inches in diameter)
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoons black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoons salt


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Slice the top and bottom off of an acorn squash. Then slice the squash in half crosswise. Slice each section crosswise to get 4 rings.
  3. Use a spoon to scoop out the seeds and pulp. Separate the seeds from the pulp and discard the pulp.
  4. Oil a sheet pan and lay out squash rings. Scatter seeds around the rings, leaving the centers empty for eggs later. Coat each ring with oil and season with salt and pepper.
  5. Bake for 20-30 minutes or until fork tender.
  6. Crack an egg into each ring and broil 2-5 minutes until the whites set, but the yolks are still soft. I like mine runny so I will broil them until the whites turn opaque. You can cook the eggs a minute longer with the oven turned off.
