Spiralized Zucchini Nest Eggs
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat a large rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.Advertisement
Toss zucchini with oil, 1/8 teaspoon pepper, salt and garlic powder until evenly coated. Using 1 cup zucchini each, create 4 nests on the prepared pan. Bake for 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, stir ricotta, basil, Parmesan and the remaining 1/8 teaspoon pepper together in a small bowl. Spread 2 tablespoons of the mixture in the center of each nest, creating an indentation. Crack an egg into each indentation. (It's OK if some of the egg spills out.) Bake until desired doneness, 12 to 15 minutes for medium set or 14 to 18 minutes for hard set.
Tips: Look for a package of fresh zucchini noodles in the produce department, or make your own zucchini noodles.
If you only have large eggs on hand, they will work but might overflow the nests a bit. Add 3 minutes additional cook time if using large eggs.
