This was so delicious that several times I forgot that it was veggies and NOT noodles holding it all together!
The original recipe was from Dandy Dishes... here is the link.
- 1 big spaghetti squash
- 2 tbsp of butter
- 1 small yellow onion
- 1 tsp ground thyme
- couple of dashes of cayenne pepper
- 1/2 cup of sour cream
- 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese (original recipe was for 3/4 cup but I upped the anty)
- 6 strips of bacon (cooked and chopped up)
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cut the squash in half. In a microwave safe bowl put 1/4 inch of water and place the squash in it open side down. Cook on high for 12 mins. Remove and scrape out the "noodles" with a fork. Repeat with second half of the squash.
In a saucepan heat up the butter, minced onions, cayenne pepper, and thyme. Cook until the onions are soft and a little brown.
Add the scooped out squash "noodles" and the saucepan onion mixture to a bowl. Add in bacon, sour cream, salt, pepper and 1/2 the cheese to the bowl and stir.
Grease a casserole dish (I use an 8x8 pan) and spread the mixture evenly on the bottom. Top with the remaining cheese.
Cook for 20-30 mins depending on your oven. The key is making sure all that gooey and wonderful cheese is melted!
