Spaghetti Squash Pancakes

by Meghann on October 10, 2012

I have an appointment on the other side of town, but before I rushed off I wanted to share the delicious lunch I made today with last night’s leftover spaghetti squash.

Spaghetti Squash Pancakes

  • 1 cup cooked spaghetti squash
  • 1 egg, scrambled
  • 3 tablespoons whole wheat flour
  • 1 cooked chicken breast, chopped
  • oregano, garlic salt, thyme, salt and pepper

Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and mix until well combined. Then divide in batter in thirds and form into pancake shapes. Add spaghetti squash pancakes to a hot greased pan and wait 2-3 minutes before flipping. Keep cooking until the inside is cooked and the outside is crispy and golden.

Top with marinara sauce, ricotta cheese, and a sprinkle of basil (or you could do salsa and cheddar cheese or whatever strikes your fancy!)

They rocked! HIGHLY recommend if you have leftover spaghetti squash in the house. They’re warm and filling and I love the crispiness of outer pancake.

Yum!

And I’m off!

Wow looks so good!! If I wasn’t leaving on vacation soon and trying to eat up what’s in the house, I would definitely run out and buy a spaghetti squash for tomorrow!

Oh this is definitely getting made in the next week! I bookmarked ravioli casserole and made it the day after I read about it on your blog. My husband loved it so much he ate what were supposed to be his lunch leftovers at dinner. LOL

What a great idea! I usually eat all the spaghetti squash, but I’ll save some out for this recipe. You’re so creative!
