Eggs and Squash? Trust me, it’s delicious. The spiraled butternut squash takes the place of potatoes here and makes this vegetarian breakfast skillet clean and lower carb. If you don’t have a spiralizer, you can usually find spiraled squash in the freezer or produce section. This breakfast for two is filling and satisfying without weighing you down.
