It’s official, Fall is my favorite season. I can’t get enough of pumpkin-themed recipes and today I’ve partnered with Kenmore Appliances to show how you can make amazing pumpkin eggs on the Kenmore 10 X 18 non-stick Electric Griddle. This griddle is compact, lightweight, and easy to store, but big enough to cook up large batches of bacon, pancakes, or pumpkin eggs.
The recipe and ingredients list are simple. All you need are some pumpkins or squash, de-seeded and cut into rings, eggs, salt, pepper and a little olive oil. You can use whatever pumpkins or squash that you like. I used delicata and carnival, but kabocha and acorn squash would be delicious too. The result is a fun, festive breakfast recipe that can be enjoyed on its own, or paired with bacon and pancakes.
- 2-3 small or medium pumpkins, de-seeded and sliced into 12 rings about 1/2 inch thick
- 1-2 T olive
- freshly cracked pepper
- 12 eggs
Slice your pumpkins into 1/2′′-3/4′′ inch rings and de-seed each ring. Be sure to slice the pumpkins with a nice, clean and straight edge so that the rings can lay flat against the griddle. This step can be done ahead of time and pumpkin slices can be stored in a sealed container in the refrigerator.
Plug in your griddle and preheat it to 350 degrees. While the griddle is preheating toss pumpkin rings in 1 T of olive oil, salt and freshly cracked pepper to taste.
Once griddle is heated to 350 degrees, arrange pumpkin rings on griddle. Allow pumpkin rings to cook for 4-6 minutes on each side, or until the pumpkins are tender enough for a fork to easily pierce through and the edges begin to brown. Set pumpkin rings aside. Depending on the size of your pumpkin rings, you made need to do this step in two batches.
Place 5-6 pumpkin rings back on the griddle, giving 1-2 inches of space between each ring. Press the rings down with a spatula so that they lay flat. Crack an egg into each pumpkin ring. For smaller rings you may only be able to fit half of an egg or simply egg whites. You can cook the eggs sunny side up style or flip them and cook both sides. Allow eggs to cook to your desired doneness, season with salt and pepper and serve immediately.
