Spaghetti Squash Breakfast Cups

Super easy Spaghetti Squash Breakfast Cups by myheartbeets.comThese spaghetti squash breakfast cups are so simple and yet so awesome. They’re perfect for when you’re on the go – they’re sturdy but also soft and creamy. The texture is unlike any other breakfast cup I’ve had before – every bite melts in your mouth.

The best thing about these delicious breakfast cups is that they’re made with just four ingredients: spaghetti squash, ground pork, eggs and season salt.

I like this organic season salt – it’s perfect for days when you don’t want to think about what spices to use – just sprinkle some of this on your meal, and you’re done. It’s a combination of real salt and organic spices like onion, coriander, mustard, black pepper, paprika, celery seed, turmeric and parsley. It’s perfect for these spaghetti squash and sausage breakfast cups!

When you make this recipe, first cook your spaghetti squash using whatever method you like (I’ve listed the oven method below). While that’s cooking, brown your ground pork with the season salt. In a bowl, combine your cooked spaghetti squash strands with your pork and whisked eggs. Mix it all up and spoon the mixture into a greased muffin pan. The recipe below made me 15 egg cups.

Once the cups cool, you can use a knife to lift them out of the pan. I use this kiwi slicer tool (that I randomly found at TJ Maxx) to help me lift things out of muffin pans. I have this tendency to buy random kitchen tools that I don’t need… and that don’t work. This kiwi tool (in my opinion) is terrible for cutting kiwis but it’s a total life saver when it comes to lifting muffins, cupcakes, small things out of small spaces. Yep, I’m totally justifying having this silly tool in my kitchen… I actually use it all the time. Unfortunately, I have yet to find a use for this impulsive and useless pineapple corer purchase… sigh.

    Thank you so much for posting a great way to use Spaghetti Squash! I love eating it but can’t always think of creative, simple ways to use it. This is especially good for a single person because you can more easily save some for later without it getting too mushy as in trying to save for leftovers!

    I love these breakfast cups. I am having to track my calories, macro nutrients, etc. Do you know how/where I can find all the nutritional info on them? I haven’t been able to find them on MyFitnessPal.

    I made these this weekend and everyone loved them. Rather than the Organic Season Salt I used the Italian Sausage Seasoning recipe from the Paleo cookbook Well Fed and I also sautéed diced onions and pepper with the ground pork. Perfect breakfast with fresh fruit for the Whole30! Thanks!
