Two nests made from spiralized zucchini with baked eggs inside, and half an avocado sliced thinly and spread out.

A nest is the perfect shape for holding an egg – just take it from nature.

If you’re not familiar with zoodles, they’re basically zucchini (or another squash) that’s been cut with a spiralizer to make them into long stringy noodle shapes. I don’t like to think of zoodles as a replacement for anything. I think they’re good as their own category, and you can do so much with them. Saut√© them and use them as a base for some sauce and protein, or do what I did here – bake them with eggs for a great morning meal!

This is a really easy breakfast to prepare, and it looks so cute! I love recipes that hit on both of those things.
