Healthy breakfasts are a great opportunity to use up any leftovers you may have, and that is how this gem of a breakfast came about.I used to make sunshine toast at sleepovers when I was younger, and this recipe follows the same idea. Instead of using toast as a vessel for the egg like I used to, some leftover butternut squash is utilized.
I've always admired those in blog-sphere that share a rustic breakfast of veggies and egg. It always look like such a marvelous way to start your day. How much healthier can you get? Butternut squash is a great source of vitamins A and B, and fiber, while the egg cooked in the middle is an excellent form of lean protein. This breakfast is a great start to the day. Not to mention a single portion is low in calories, and full of flavor!
Steamed butternut squash, cut the raw squash into rounds by slicing the squash to form 'coins', then hollow out the seeded part once you reach it before proceeding to cut the rings. Steam the squash rounds.
salt and pepper
Pam spray, oil, or butter to grease the pan
Serve with some fruit and season with a little salt and pepper.
Instead of bread and squash, I have also seen this being done with pepper rings. That would be delicious!
