Spaghetti Squash Pancakes

Total Time

These savory little Pancakes are great with a little salt, pepper, sour cream and even apple sauce for a side dish, appetizer or even brekfast dish. They remind me of potato pancakes, except without the starch.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Add flour& cheese to the strands of the cooked spaghetti squash.
  2. Mix well, using a couple of forks.
  3. Depending on the flavor you wish, or your dietary preferences, melt 1 tablespoon butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat or heat olive oil in skillet instead.
  4. Spoon 1/4 cup squash mixture into prepared skillet.
  5. With a fork, press to form an evenly thick cake.
  6. Repeat to fill skillet.

Johnney should be commended for using spaghetti squash in a creative way, one in which could be used on brunch menus, dinner menus, buffet for a special brunch, etc. I read Liz Ann and decided to read the recipe carefully. My changes made an unbelievable little puffy pancake. Make sure you do not overcook the squash. It only takes about 7 minutes on high in the microwave and will still be crunchy! The recipe is: 4 1/2 cups spaghetti squash 1/3 cup flour 1/2 cup parmesan cheese 2 eggs whipped sea salt and ground pepper 1/2 onion, minced and 1 tsp shredded fresh ginger Saute the onion and ginger in 1 tablespoon butter. Add to the spaghetti squash with the other ingredients and stir gently until it is all mixed Heat a scant 1/8" oil in a skillet and add the batter a big tablespoon at a time and try to make ovals. Then turn as they brown. Let them sit cooking for a few minutes to make sure they are cooked. Serve with a dollop of Cilantro Sour Cream. Yes, even my Jewish other half said they were very good latkes!! Thank you Johnny, I rarely can think of something good to make with Spaghetti Squash.

I am not going to rate this yet. I overcooked my spaghetti squash which resulted in extra mushy squash which I think messed up this recipe a tad bit. I ended up giving the dog the first batch, which she loved, then adding about a cup more flour plus an egg and they still came out kind of runny. I will try again because I have tons of squash in my garden. Then I wil rate it. But thought I would post these notes for reference for others. Next time I will try your method of cooking squash!
