Smoked Paprika Squash, Topped with Poached Egg

Mmmm… brunch.

Adapted from Encas


  • 1 med acorn squash
  • 1 small yellow onion, sliced
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp rosemary
  • 1 tsp parsley
  • garlic salt
  • olive oil
  • 3 poached eggs 
  • black pepper


Peel and cut squash in to wedges. Toss wedges in plenty of olive oil, seasonings, and onions, and let sit ~30 min+. Preheat oven 20 375F. Bake squash until just cooked through. Crank up heat to 400F and broil for 5-10 min, or until a nice crust forms on the squash.

Top with poached eggs and fresh ground pepper. (Eggs can be made ahead of time, slightly undercooked, and placed in an ice bath. When ready to serve, place in a small pot of water, and bring to a low simmer until warm.)

Just look at those pretty fall colors (:

Happy Halloween!
