Butternut Squash Noodle Nests and Eggs

  • Author: Katja from Savory Lotus
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 15 minutes
  • Total Time: 25 minutes


Fried eggs nested in savory butternut squash noodles come together to make a hearty and satisfying meal.  Gluten free. Paleo, Whole30. 


  • 1 tbsp ghee, coconut oil, or avocado oil
  • 2 cups butternut squash noodles **
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder (like this)
  • 2 eggs
  • extras: fresh herbs, sauerkraut, salad greens, red pepper flakes


  1. Melt fat of choice in a  large skillet over medium heat. Add butternut squash noodles, salt, and garlic powder.  Cook until noodles are tender but not falling apart – about 6-8 minutes.  If noodles begin to stick, add a teaspoon or two of water. 
  2. Once noodles are tender, form into two nests with an indentation in the center.  Crack an egg into center of each nest.  Cook for 5-7 minutes, until whites are cooked but yolks are still soft. For more well done yolks, place lid onto skillet for a few minutes. 
  3. Use a spatula to transfer egg nests to a plate and add whatever extras you like : fresh herbs, sauerkraut, salad greens, red pepper flakes, etc.
