Zucchini Noodle Egg Nests

If you’ve ever had hash brown egg nests or a traditional “egg in a nest”, you know they’re an easy and delicious way to enjoy breakfast. Totally more exciting than a green smoothie or some scrambled eggs.

Here, we’re swapping out the potatoes and/or toast in exchange for zucchini noodles! Zucchini noodles are lighter, more nutritious, and just crunchy enough to be nest-worthy. It’s incredibly easy, best eaten out of a pan with some avocado and crusty bread!

And if you follow along on Instagram, you saw that I remade this recipe, because I was unhappy with the photos – how the rim of the pan on the left hand side is burnt. I just wasn’t watching the pan enough and it browned. SO, I made another version of these zucchini noodle egg nests, but forgot to buy tomatoes and forgot to top with avocado, so although the pan and the egg looked a bit better, the overall photo and meal just wasn’t something I was proud of.

Long story short, I’m reinforcing my point that DONE is better than PERFECT, and here we are – because many of you said that you like how “real” the photo looks. Such as, if you were gong to make it at home, this is what it would look like. And it would!

So cheers to starting our weeks off with some realness!

ALSO, I want to take this opportunity to announce that we’re now on GIPHY! That’s right, you can use all sorts of fun Inspiralized stickers on your Instagram Stories, such as our pile of zucchini noodles or “I’d Spiralize That”! Can’t wait to see how you use our stickers!
