These tiny honeynut squash are a delicious vessel for baking eggs in.
Have you seen those cute little squash that look like mini butternut squash?
These little squash are called Honeynut Squash and they are sweet and delicious.
Grab them if you can because they already disappeared from our store. These squash would make a delicious holiday side dish, or bake some eggs inside for a delicious paleo baked eggs breakfast.

Did you see these little squash at your local Trader Joes? At 99 cents each, how can I resist picking up a few to try out? They look pretty normal size when you look at this picture, but look below. I cut them in half and put a lime in the middle of these for a little perspective.

I created a breakfast recipe with these squash because Mr. Fearless Dining is still trying to keep his carb intake down. Butternut squash works so well with eggs that I had to try with the honeynut squash.
This recipe is as easy as it gets for breakfast. Slice these squash in half and scoop out the seeds. Next, drizzle olive oil and sprinkle a little salt and nutmeg on them. Drop a raw egg into the hole and bake.

Tools I used to Make This Recipe:
- 9×13″ Baking Pan: This is just the right size to fit all of the pieces of squash in.
- Olive Oil Mister: I have never heard of these until recently. This mister makes it so easy to put a fine mist of olive oil on vegetables before baking them.
