Butternut Squash Scramble

Brown eggs for a squash scramble

Every morning, The Hubster has scrambled eggs with sauteed spinach and toast. And when he doesn’t, it’s not a pretty morning. Or afternoon. Or evening.

I, on the other hand, tend to do things like toast and hot cider, granola, or refrigerator oats for breakfast.

Every now and then, I crave eggs.

This was one of those cravings, combined with some leftover shreds of butternut squash from our massive batch of squash patties.

And holy wow, was it a party in my mouth.

It was so good, that I had it three mornings in a row.

Three mornings.
In a row.

I’m beginning to sound like The Hubster.

I’m almost tempted to shred another squash just so I can have this for breakfast again.
