Ready In:




  • Add eggs, onion or chives, salt and pepper to cooked spaghetti squash. Form into 3 inch patties.
  • Heat oil in a skillet. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Spoon 1/4 cup squash mixture into skillet. With a fork, press to form an evenly thick cake. Repeat. Cook cakes until bottoms are lightly browned, turn over and brown second side. Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side. Continue until you've used all the squash mixture. Use additional butter if necessary.
  • Sprinkle with salt and pepper and serve with sour cream.
  • For a different flavor, you can saute the patties in butter. For an Asian flair, saute in canola oil mixed with a few drops of sesame oil, serve with soy sauce.

  1. 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.
  2. This was very tasty. I made it as directed using green onions. I had to use more oil to keep them from sticking to the skillet which made them a little greasier than I would like. Next time I will try baking them.
  3. 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.
  4. 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 ;)
