Ok friends…unless you’re under a rock you’ve totally seen the FALL FLAVORS everywhere! As much as I love my warm weather — I do love the change of seasons…especially all of the fall feelings you get of some of our favorites cozy spices.
With fall also comes a new love and appreciation for SQUASH.
I truly love roasting squash and eating it savory as a side dish with rosemary & pink salt or sweet with cinnamon & some sprinkled stevia.
I’ve partnered up with Fit Approach & Eggland’s Best to create a fall inspired recipe with a hit of protein —-> insert, Squash & Caramelized Onion Omelette Sandwich with Avocado!
To me, the flavors in this really compliment each other from the sweet caramelized onions to the creamy avocado & the fall flavored rosemary omelet with a surprise guest inside….squash!
In this particular recipe I used a Delicata squash but you could truly sub ANY roasted squash to this dish.
- 2 Eggland’s Best Eggs
- 1 Delicata Squash (or squash of choice)
- Splash of Milk (this can be omitted but helps make omelette fluffy)
- 1 English Muffin or 2 pieces of toast of choice
- 1/4 Cup of Red Onion
- 1/2 of a Ripe Avocado
- 1 tsp of dried or Fresh Rosemary
- Roast your squash by dicing the squash into pieces, spray with spray of choice, sprinkle with salt of choice and then roast in the oven at 375 degrees for about 40 minutes or until browned & tender.
- Caramelize your onions by slicing them and adding them to a sprayed pan and cook until they have cooked down & become sweet.
- Make your omelette by spraying a pan and mixing together your 2 Eggland’s Best Eggs + splash of milk + tsp of rosemary + pink salt/pepper to taste + and then add to the sprayed pan on LOW heat.
- Cook on LOW heat until one side is cooked and then use a spatula to slip over & cook the other side.
- Fold the omelette so it will fit on the English muffin.
- Smash your avocado onto the English muffin, add greens on top of that, then place your omelette on top of that before adding your caramelized onions ON TOP OF THAT! Can you tell this is a stacked sandwich? ;]
- Let cool and ENJOY!
