The Ultimate Breakfast Stuffed Acorn Squash

Sep 23, 2019

The ultimate breakfast stuffed acorn squash makes a great breakfast, lunch or dinner! Fluffy egg whites, hearty turkey sausage, oven-roasted organic potatoes, Monterey Jack, and cheddar cheeses, all stuffed in a roasted acorn squash- makes for easy meal prep.

‘Tis the season for all things squash! Each year we like to create a new fall-inspired squash recipe. They may be similar in that they are almost always a stuffed squash. However, some are breakfast inspired, and others are lunch/dinner inspired. Truth be told, this recipe would work for any meal of the day! The other great thing about stuffed squash recipes is that they work well for meal prep. One for dinner, one to pack up for the next day. It’s such a win!

So, if you’re a fan of cozy fall recipes, then it’s time for you to get in the kitchen and start cooking! We used our Turkey Sausage Scramble Bowl in this recipe, but our Bacon Scramble Bowl or even our vegetarian Southwestern Scramble Bowl would be just as delicious!

All you need are three main ingredients; squash, a scramble bowl, and cheese to make this. It really doesn’t get any easier. Then the oven does the rest of the work!

We serve this for breakfast with fresh fruit, lunch with a side salad, or even for dinner. If we are making this into a full meal, we will usually use 1 large squash instead of two small ones and enjoy a large half. This recipe is also perfect for a holiday side dish. Use either baby acorn squash or use small ones and cut them in half to create the side.

They pair wonderfully with sliced turkey breast, cranberry sauce, and some roasted fall vegetables such as Brussel sprouts or carrots. Who knew a breakfast scramble bowl could be so versatile?
