First I got all the ingredients. 1/2 of a roasted Spaghetti squash , 2 Tbsp chopped onion , 1 tsp chopped jalapeno , 1 egg , 1/4 cup flour , 2 Tbsp. Shredded Colby Jack cheese ( or any cheese ) Salt & pepper
Spaghetti Squash Fritters
I had left over roasted spaghetti squash and wanted to try to make them into a hash brown or breakfast fritter .
First I beat the egg in the bowl and added some salt & pepper , Then I mixed in the spaghetti squash , onion & jalapeno
Next I added the flour and mixed it in until it was well blended . I had some milk out thinking I might need to add a little , but I didn't , the spaghetti squash was quite moist . Once the flour was well blended I added the cheese and mixed it in .
I put a pan over medium heat . I used a small amount of oil , maybe 1-2 teaspoons just so the fritters could brown and get crispy . I dropped 4 spoonfuls onto the hot pan and cooked for about 3 1/2 minutes per side .
This is how they looked after flipping them after 3-4 minutes
These fritters had the texture and flavor of potato pancakes , with a little kick from the jalapeno . These would be easy to change to your own taste by adding different veggies or use any favorite cheese. You can also use any type of flour !
