Bake at 425° for 15 minutes or until squash is just fork tender. Remove baking sheet from oven. Crack an egg into the center of each acorn slice; sprinkle eggs with remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt. Return pan to oven, reduce oven temperature to 350° and bake for 12 minutes or until eggs.

How to Make Acorn Squash Egg-in-the-Hole: Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F and lightly spray a large baking sheet or line with a sheet of foil or parchment paper. Cut the acorn squash into rounds by first chopping the tip and tail off of the acorn squash. Cut into four 1/2″ to 3/4″-thick rounds.

Plop the eggs in the holes of the squash slices and continue to bake them until the eggs are just set. A sprinkling of chopped fresh thyme, chives, or really any herb of your liking adds a touch of brightness to your plate before digging in. It’s a breakfast you’re guaranteed to feel good about.

Remove baking sheet from oven. Crack an egg into the center of each acorn slice; sprinkle eggs with remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt. Return pan to oven, reduce oven temperature to 350° and bake for 12 minutes or until eggs are cooked. Remove from oven and carefully crack an egg into the center of each acorn squash ring.

Return the baking sheet to the oven and bake for 10 minutes or until the yolks reach your desired hardness. While the eggs-in-a-hole are cooking, prepare the sage brown butter.

If you wish, substitute a sweet dumpling squash—they are a similar shape—without the fluted edge and a bit sweeter than acorn squash. Use a pastry brush to brush both sides of the squash slices with oil, then sprinkle with the salt mixture (reserve a small.
