View Full Version : Hash browned spaghetti squash

This was done with leftover squash from last night but if you don't have leftovers, cook some ahead of time and let it cool. Remove the water either by squeezing the hell out of it between wads of paper towel or, as I did, put it through a potato ricer.

Take a 12" skillet (cast iron works best but isn't necessary) and melt 2T of unsalted butter over medium high heat. Add half of a red onion, finely diced and sweat without letting the onion brown. Add a couple handfuls of drained squash, mix to coat in butter and distribute onion, then spread out and compact. Sprinkle with kosher salt and drizzle with olive oil. Brown, flip, brown, serve.

It's basic hash brown technique. If you've never done it before, just practice. You'll get it.

Sounds good. Consistency-wise are they pretty similar to hashbrowns? What do you eat this with?

The consistency is pretty similar to hash browns but the squash is naturally a little sweeter. I used them as a bed for some country ribs that I topped with the avocado mango salsa in the other thread but you can eat them with anything you'd normally pair with squash...pretty much everything.
