Bacon Squash Patties

Well, today confirms winter is here. It is SH*TTY outside. But, what better way to spend a day like this than to play in the kitchen. 🙂

Over the past few weeks I’ve made some great stuff, so I thought I’d better start posting.

I know you know I LOVE Juli Bauer’s stuff (PaleOMG). She’s good. Really good and finds great ways to use one of my fave foods – bacon. So, here’s one that I love and will make again and again — but will probably do it casserole style since I am lazy and just want to eat the stuff ASAP.

Original recipe here and below. I followed this one since I was trying to make the patties. On the first round, I think I had too much coconut oil in my pan. On the next round, not enough. So, will work a bit more to find the magic. Patty or not – this was freaking good.  Enjoy!

Ingredients
  • 1 large acorn squash, cut in half, seeds removed
  • 4-6 strips bacon, diced
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • salt and pepper, to taste
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Cut your squash in half and place your squash open side, face down on a baking sheet.
  3. Roast your squash for 25-30 minutes.
  4. Once your squash is soft when you poke its skin, remove it from the oven to cool.
  5. Then cook your bacon in a medium pan until cooked through, and place on a paper towel to soak up the excess fat.
  6. Reserve 2 tablespoons of bacon fat in your pan after your bacon in done cooking.
  7. Scoop out your acorn squash into a bowl and add your bacon, eggs, coconut flour, and salt and pepper. Mix thoroughly until eggs are broken up completely.
  8. Use a spoon to scoop out a large spoonful of mixture and add to your hot bacon fat pan.
  9. Cook each patty for 3-5 minutes then use a spatula to flip it over and press down and cook for another 3-5 minutes.
  10. You just want to create a crust on each side of the patty.
  11. Repeat.
  12. Serve with your favorite protein.
  13. Makes 4-8 patties.
