I am forever searching for that bite of comfort food that I can eat all I want of.
I like to eat. I like fairly good-sized portions of food. But I want it to be food that loves me.
Isn’t the misconception in the eating, get fat, get thin, lose weight world one of suffering through the “don’t eat this’s” and the “don’t eat thats. ” We all know what happens at the end, don’t we?
We eat everything that’s all wrong in so many ways. So, I’m always on the search for food that doesn’t require suffering.
Spaghetti squash hash brown with bacon and shallots is only pleasure, and is the recreation of the ever loving potato hash brown.
We’ve all seen spaghetti squash tell pasta to move over, like in this dish with spicy shrimp, but not too often, do we see spaghetti squash tell a potato to move over.
I’m not saying potatoes are bad foods, but they are heavy carbs and there are times we proclaim a zero carb zone. It’s the way of this century, and I suspect many years to come. One hashbrown is about 3 or 4 carbs and has fiber, so fill up.
To make a really perfectly balanced meal, add in oven fried eggs, and enjoy one of my favorite breakfasts. Of course, I added some bacon (pancetta would be good, too) and some shallots.
Shallots make just about everything better, but feel free to substitute scallions.
Use my OVEN FRIED SUNNY SIDE UP EGG recipe to keep it easy and fool proof.
So tell me, do you have any tricks for cutting the calories? Or eating healthier for breakfast. I’d love to hear about them in the comments.

I definitely needed this recipe. I recently kicked wheat and gluten out of my diet, and as a result, I’ve been consuming a lot of potatoes for breakfast lately. I appreciate having this healthier option to potato hashbrowns. Thanks Angela!
