Patty Pan Squash Succotash with a Poached Egg

Saturday morning. I wake up and look at my phone. It's not even 8 am. After a night of salsa dancing, that's not enough sleep at all. I fall back asleep. I wake up when it's almost 10 am. I get up, go to my living room, turn on the AC and the TV and watch the Food Network for an hour.

Wait, I'm hungry. I should make breakfast. Or is it lunch now? Who cares!?

I go to my kitchen. I haven't done any major grocery shopping whatsoever, but I'm good with coming up with random dishes from random ingredients. Plus, I'm not super picky. Ha. That was a joke ;)

That's how I created Patty Pan Squash Succotash with a Poached Egg.

Patty Pan Squash Succotash with a Poached Egg
Serves 2***

olive oil
2 large patty pan squashes, diced
kernels from 1 corn on the cob
1 yellow pepper, diced
4 garlic cloves, chopped
salt & pepper
red pepper flakes to taste
2 poached eggs

I'm not sure exactly why, but I'm totally in ♥ with this photo.


1. Heat the olive oil in a skillet. Add the next four ingredients and saute seasoned with salt & pepper and red pepper flakes until golden brown.

2. Divide the mixture between two bowls, top with poached eggs and chive.
3. Dig in.

***If like me you live alone, make this entire recipe, but only poach one egg. Save half of the succotash for lunch next day. Check in next week to see what I did with it ;)

Happy weekend!!!

I had a morning like that today... woke up at 7 and decided that was too early to be up on a Sunday so I went back to sleep until 9:40. :) I'm trying to grow pattypan squashes. If they work out, I need to remember this! Looks delicious!
