I really like spaghetti squash. I am always looking for other ways to eat it. You may know that I hate eggs but I always wish I could eat them. Well guess what I found a perfect recipe that I have made a few twists to make it my own that includes eggs!
Here is what the fritters look like after they are all cooked:
So let me tell you how to make these sweet babies.
I cooked the spaghetti squash by entering it whole in the microwave for 5 minutes. I then let it cool, cut the bottom and the top off and cut down the middle. (This process makes it easier to cut the squash.) Scoop out the seeds and place down in a glass pan, add a little water and cover with plastic wrap. Microwave for 5 more minutes. Remove the plastic and let it cool. Then shred the squash.
You will then want to get out as much water from the squash as you can. Place it in the center of a dish towel and twist until no more water comes out. Now the squash is ready to be made into the fritters.
In a bowl add the eggs and beat. Next add the gluten free flour, salt and pepper and mix well. Next add the squash, onions, pepper, back and cheese and mix together.
Make sure everything is well distributed and mixed well.
Get your pan really hot before you add any oil. This is important or you may have problems getting the fritters to stick together. Melt the coconut oil and drop four spoonfuls into the pan and form them into fritters. Cook 2-3 minutes and then carefully flip them over and cook another 2-3 minutes.
I served these with Potato, Corn Chowder Soup.
I hope you will try these fritters. They are really good!
