Yield: About 20 Bites

Ingredients:

  • 1 small spaghetti squash
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 egg

Directions:

  1. Wash hands with soap and water. Preheat oven to 400 ºF.
  2. Scrub spaghetti squash with a clean vegetable brush under running water. Cut squash in half and scoop out seeds.
  3. Bake in oven for 40 minutes or until tender (or place cut side down on a microwave safe dish with ½ cup of water. Cover with a lid or plastic wrap and cook on high for 8-12 minutes).
  4. The squash is done when a fork easily pierces the skin and goes into the flesh. Let cool and scoop out the flesh.
  5. Break egg into a medium-sized bowl. Wash hands with soap and water after cracking raw egg. Add 1 ½ cups of the cooked squash, bread crumbs and cheese. Stir until thoroughly blended.
  6. Line a baking dish or cookie sheet with parchment paper. Scoop 1 Tablespoon squash batter to form bite-size balls. Place squash balls on prepared dish. Wash hands with soap and water.
  7. Bake 15-20 minutes until bottoms are golden brown. Flip and bake another 3 minutes until golden.
  8. Store leftovers in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to four days.
