Ingredients

For Spaghetti Squash Hash Browns:

  • 1 large spaghetti squash
  • 1 cup chopped scallions
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • 3 eggs
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 4 oz shredded, low-fat cheddar cheese

For Maple Turkey Sausage Patties:

  • ½ tsp dried sage
  • ¼ tsp dried thyme
  • ¼ tsp rosemary
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp ground pepper
  • 2 Tbsp sugar-free maple syrup
  • 1 lb 95-97% lean ground turkey
  • 2 tsp olive oil

Instructions

Prepare the spaghetti squash. Cut in half, and remove seeds and stringy pulp.

Place each spaghetti squash half face down in a microwave-safe baking dish, and fill dish with about one inch of water. Microwave on high for 10 to 15 minutes, until middle is tender and pulls apart easily.

Meanwhile, prepare turkey sausage patties. Combine all seasonings in a bowl. Mix seasonings and syrup into ground turkey with hands. Form turkey mixture into patties, and cook in skillet with olive oil, until cooked through and lightly browned.

Scrape flesh of spaghetti squash with a fork to create spaghetti-like strands, and remove strands from the skin.

Allow squash to cool, and then squeeze the squash strands in your hands a few times over the sink to release excess water.

Combine drained squash strands, scallions, garlic powder, eggs, salt, and pepper in a large bowl.

Cook squash mixture in large skillet with olive oil over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, for 10 to 15 minutes, until golden brown.

Immediately top with the cheddar cheese, and serve with maple turkey sausage patties.
