Spaghetti Squash Patties
- Ready In:
- Add eggs, onion or chives, salt and pepper to cooked spaghetti squash. Form into 3 inch patties.

Last night my husband asked if I would make potato pancakes for breakfast. Of course we had no potatoes, but did have a spaghetti squash so I tried this. Oh wow it was great. The only change I made was to use eggbeaters for real eggs and Pam cooking spray for oil. We will defiantly be making this aging.
Just finished one of these with an egg on top for breakfast. I added a bit of stuff to these for my own personal tastes, so it had some crumbled up bacon, onion, garlic, and cheese mixed in, as well as other additional seasonings as I noticed them in the cabinet... I will say that my definition of med squash might have been different than the recipe's, so just add eggs one at a time until you get the consistency you want. After adding all 4 I had to add a binder so that this wasn't soup. Otherwise, great recipe that satisfied my craving for hash browns/latkes this morning.
This is a very tasty recipe. My husband just gobbled it up; we ate 1/2 a squash between the two of us at dinner tonight. I did the recipe just at written, but also added 2 tsp. of Herbs de Provence ground finely with a mortar & pestle. These little gems were great with salsa picante on top, and I was dying to try them with some applesauce (like with potato latkes.) We'll definitely repeat these again and again, maybe baking in a casserole dish next time. If I didn't have a problem with dairy, I'd be adding some Parmesan cheese too ;)
