Spaghetti Squash Fritters on plateI've been getting a bit tired of spaghetti squash in the usual form I prepare it; with spaghetti sauce or as a layered lasagna. I tried turning them into crisp fritters and they were delightful. You can add whatever bits you like in them, I went with onions, bacon and Parmesan cheese.


If you'd like to bake these instead of fry them, lay fritter batter on a lightly greased baking sheet and bake at 400 F, 10-12 minutes per side.

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes


  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 3 cups spaghetti squash, cooked
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/4 onion, finely chopped
  • 5 strips bacon
  • vegetable or canola oil


  1. To cook your spaghetti squash, cut in half and place facing downwards on a plate with a bit of water in the center. Microwave for about 8-10 minutes until fully cooked. Scrape with a fork to get about 3 cups of squash strands out and allow to cool down a bit, then wring out all the moisture. Don't skip out this drying procedure or else you'll have gummy fritters!

  5. Whisk in the flour until thoroughly combined.

  7. Add the spaghetti squash, Parmesan cheese, onions, and some salt and pepper. I went easy on the salt as the cheese had enough saltiness. Let this mixture sit while you prepare the bacon.

  9. Cook bacon over medium-high heat until crispy. Drain on paper towel. Keep the rendered bacon grease in the pan if you'd like to fry your fritters in them.

  13. Heat pan over high heat and use bacon grease or oil of your choice. Use 2 spoons to make a mound of batter and drop into pan. Press down so they are nice big round discs. Add as many as you can without them touching or crowding the pan.
