  • 8 walnut halves

Instructions:

 

  • Preheat oven to 375F

  • Remove the seeds and place the slices on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Sprinkle liberally with salt and pepper and bake in the oven for 20 minutes.
  • While the squash is in the oven, place walnuts and dates on a cutting board and chop them simultaneously until their texture resembles that of coarse sand.
  • Take the squash out of the oven and drizzle each slice with a little bit of olive oil.
  • Crack an egg directly in the center of each slice, sprinkle eggs with a little bit of salt and pepper and sprinkle date/walnut crumble over the entire surface of the squash slices and eggs
  • Return to the oven for 8-10 minutes or until the eggs are done to your likin
  • Garnish with fresh parsley and serve immediately.
  • Drizzle with maple syrup if desired.
