Pepper, Squash & Egg Breakfast Boat

Pepper, Squash & Egg Breakfast Boat

Never in a million years did I think I would enjoy vegetables for breakfast.

I was a breakfast sandwich girl through and through.  I love sausage, bacon, cheese, a nice hard roll.  If it went between two slices of bread, I loved it.  In fact, if it had breakfast meat I loved it.  I could never claim to be interested in becoming a vegan.  My favorite meals include meat.

This morning, however; I was craving something different, and my creative juices started flowing.  Hence, the creation of the Pepper, Squash & Egg Breakfast Boat!

Using leftovers.

We had spaghetti squash last night with dinner, and there was a bunch left over.

I grabbed the spaghetti squash, an egg (it’s breakfast, after all), almond flour, a pepper and some spices.  I simply cut the pepper into rings, mixed everything else into a bowl, put the mixture into the pepper ring, and cooked it in a non-stick skillet coated with olive oil spray.

An easy, healthy breakfast recipe using last nights' leftover spaghetti squash!

By:

Ingredients
  • 1 c spaghetti squash
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tbsp almond flour
  • 1 large bell pepper
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch pepper
  • 1 pinch red pepper flakes
Directions
  • Step 1 Slice your bell pepper into 1/4″ slices
  • Step 2 Mix spaghetti squash in bowl with beaten egg
  • Step 3 Add spices
  • Step 4 Add almond flour
  • Step 5 Mix well
  • Step 6 Place pepper rings in pan set to medium heat
  • Step 7 Add spaghetti squash mixture and cook for 3 minutes
  • Step 8 Turn over and cook for an additional three minutes
  • Step 9 Serve & Enjoy!

You’ll notice from the photos that I cooked one batch a little bit longer than another based on the coloring.  That’s because my husband enjoys eggs cooked a bit longer than I do.  It’s really a preference.  In the end, he also added a slice of cheddar to the top of two.  The possibilities are endless!

Enjoy!
