Eggs Baked in Acorn Squash with Bacon

While recipe testing for the October Week 2 meal plans, I made sure to throw a few extra acorn squash halves into the oven so I could enjoy this protein-rich breakfast the next day!

So easy, so much fun, and so tasty!

Big bonus: everything bakes together at the same temperature. No extra pans or dishes to clean!
