Spaghetti Squash Croquettes

So when I started to write this recipe post I realized that I didn’t take a picture of the croquettes by themselves, or even where you can see them in focus.  (The croquettes are in the background.)

#foodbloggerfail because I was hungry! 

I’m learning that cooking meals that we actually need to eat and trying to take pictures of the food should not be done at the same time.  Rookie mistake.  I need to start cooking for the sake of cooking and creating new recipes.  Like I said, I’m learning.  I give myself brownie points for even having a recipe to share!  I’ve always just cooked with my imagination, never writing things down or measuring ingredients.  I’m getting better at all of that so I can share my kitchen creations with you.  Progress!

If you read my post about creating a gluten free recipe for schnitzel here, then you already know that this recipe for spaghetti squash croquettes was born because I was having a major craving for french fries.

I know, I know, spaghetti squash tastes nothing like french fries.  Believe me, I KNOW!

Still, these turned out better than I expected and I’ll definitely be making them again!  I’m not a huge fan of spaghetti squash just by itself, but when I added some flavor with these herbs, seasonings and radishes . . . oh my goodness . . . yum!

If you try this recipe please let me know your thoughts in the comments.  Have you done any creative things with spaghetti squash?  I’d love to hear about that, too!

Instructions
  1. In a medium sized bowl, combine all ingredients except the olive oil.
  2. Put olive oil in a nonstick or cast-iron skillet on medium heat.
  3. Using a spoon or your hands, form the mixture into 8 thick, circular croquettes. As you form them, put them into the hot skillet.
  4. Allow to cook 5 minutes on each side, turning carefully to make sure you keep them together.
  5. If you want softer radishes and onions, allow them to cook a little longer or put a lid over the skillet so the steam will soften them up.
  6. Serve alongside pork schnitzel or any other main dish you enjoy.
