I’ve made a meat crust quiche before, but this time, I went the opposite route. Veggie route. And light carb route. I’m not one to watch my carbs that much, I just eat. But I hear spaghetti squash is low carb. So you’re welcome, carb-watchers. If I’m wrong, my b.

So I’ve been trying to keep busy through the weekend. But keeping busy turned into many, many episodes of Sex in the City. Do you ever feel like shows and songs you hear on the radio relate completely to what you’re going through? No? I’m just that self absorbed that I feel like the world is orbiting me? Cool. Anywho, I swear every episode included Carrie going through a break up. Mostly because that’s all that show is about. But that’s besides the point. She even talked about rules to breaking up. It included not going shopping. I broke that rule. But what better thing to make you feel better in life than a new pair of boots? Nothing. I bought these boots online. I’m literally going to squeal when they arrive at my doorstep.

Another way you think will keep your mind from going insane is going for a nice little bike ride. Bullsh*t. You have even more time to think when you’re moseying around on a bike, doing circles around the park, barely being able to hear others around you because of the wind creating white noise in your ears. Whoever said running or biking clears your head obviously was not going through a break up at the time. What does work is CrossFit. You’re in such pain, the mind blurs pretty well at that point in order to not completely break. No wonder I started competing in CrossFit more when I went through my last break up. I spent hours upon hours in the gym in order to keep my mind blank. Oh love, you sonofab*tch.

Back to the point. Laura and I took this nice little bike ride around the park and throughout our neighborhood. I needed to get out of the house, she needed to learn to use her new fancy road bike that she will be using in a month in her triathlon. So, just in case she fell over in public trying to clip in and out, at least she had me there to laugh at her. But while we biked around, geese decided it would be a good idea to cross the street. While the goose sped up his little goose feet so I wouldn’t hit him, a car drove by at the same time. Bad timing for sure on his end. So the car caught his wing, feathers flew everywhere, I had to lift my feet up straight in the air in order not to give him a concussion, and I couldn’t look back. What if he died? That would be awful. But Laura looked back and he was just fine. Do you think he learned his lesson or forgot about it in 34.3 seconds because his brain is rather small? I don’t know, man. I just know I did not witness a hit and run that day. Thank gosh.

In the end, I have had a good break up. I think you see people’s true colors when relationships end. And I saw his. And his colors were bright and wonderful. Just like I always saw him. Love is truly an amazing thing and I feel damn lucky to have experienced it with such a kind and wonderful person. Love shapes and molds us, and I can honestly say I have been molded into a better person because of that man.

Thanks for letting me get deep on you. You’re a good listener, random person.

4.9 from 33 reviews

  • Yield: 4-6 1x


  • 1 medium spaghetti squash (2 pounds), cut in half lengthwise
  • 3/4 pound pork breakfast sausage
  • 6 eggs, whisked
  • 1/2 tablespoon dried parsley
  • 1/2 tablespoon dried basil
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • handful of sliced mushrooms (I used shiitake mushrooms)
  • coconut oil, to grease pie plate


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Place spaghetti squash cut side down on a baking sheet. Bake squash for 20-25 minutes or until you can press on the outside of the squash and it gives a bit.
  3. Once spaghetti squash is done cooking, remove from oven, scoop out the seeds and excess strings and let cool while you finish the rest of the quiche. Once spaghetti squash is cooled, use a fork to remove the threads.
  4. Turn oven down to 350 degrees.
  5. Place breakfast sausage in a medium pan over medium heat. Break up and cook until there is no pink left. Remove from heat and drain any excess fat, if needed.
  6. Whisk together eggs, parsley, basil, salt and pepper in a bowl.
  7. Pull out a pie plate and grease thoroughly with coconut oil. Add all the spaghetti squash threads to the pie plate and press down into the plate and up onto the sides. Try to make it even throughout.
  8. Pour the eggs into the plate, then add the crumbled sausage, on top with sliced mushrooms. Sprinkle with a bit more salt on top.
  9. Place in oven to bake for 30-35 minutes at 350 degrees or until eggs are cooked through in the middle.
  10. Let rest before cutting into it.
  11. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner is served!

    This the recipe that started it all with Paleo lifestyle! Yummy! You can eat healthy and it can be good! Thank you for your awesome blog! Keep them coming. Question: have you tried the bulletproof coffee?

  2. Katie says:

    Hey Juli! I’m thinking about making this for Mother’s Day brunch and was hoping to get some work done before-hand. Would this hold up being made the night before? Or would the squash turn watery over night?

    1. juli says:

      it can get watery pretty easily…

  3. Andie Kae says:

    Hello! This looks wonderful! I was just wondering how long it would be good for / be good reheated?

  4. renee says:

    Thank you for having a PRINT button that actually formats the recipe for a (typically) one page print. It is very appreciated! I can’t wait to make this!

  5. Jon says:

    My spaghetti squash is watery which makes the dish watery. Is there a way I should prepare it to make it less watery?

    1. juli says:

      some spaghetti squash just hold more liquid OR you may have cooked it too long. try not cooking it as long next time around. that’s always frustrating when it gets watery like that

  6. Nancy says:

    Mine (just baked it) was watery too however I had this gut feeling it was going to be because I cooked the squash yesterday. I knew I should have squeezed out the moisture before adding to pan but I was to lazy. Still yummy enough to eat though.

  7. Risa says:

    This turned out fantastic! I’d been experimenting with potato or sweet potato hash crusts before but this totally tops those! I had cooked my spaghetti squash two days in advance and was worried about the watery result others mentioned in the comments, so I did some squeezing with papertowels and also pre-baked the crust for 5-10 minutes. It was still moist when I took it out and added the egg, but perhaps that helped b/c while my crust is still moist I don’t feel like it’s too soggy. I also added a layer of spinach between the egg and sausage/mushrooms. Delish!

  8. Health Vibed says:

    Well i’m about ready to end my sobriety and resume a life lived alongside eggs. This looks like the perfect way to bring eggs back in with a bit of style!

    Looking forward to trying it!
