Spaghetti Squash Pancakes

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Johnney

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.

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.
