Paleo Spaghetti Squash Carbonara Recipe

By Friday, October 18, 2013 3 Permalink 0

Winter is almost here, so I’m attempting to expand my cooking knowledge to include more seasonal items, so it was only a matter of time before I tried cooking with squash. I’ve stopped searching Google for recipes and I have yet to find a Paleo food blog that I *love*, so I turn to Pinterest to look for dishes that I think will be appetizing. When searching for ways to prepare spaghetti squash I kept coming across this pin:

Unfortunately this is one of those ghost pins that leads you no where. After some searching I was able to figure out the ingredients of normal squash carbonara and then searched for videos on how to poach an egg (another thing I have never done) and created my own recipe that turned out really well!

Paleo Spaghetti Squash Carbonara Recipe
Recipe type: Entree
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 2 w/ leftovers
  • 1 Spaghetti Squash
  • 1 Clove of Garlic
  • 4 Pieces of Bacon
  • 2 Eggs
  • Oil (I used Avocado)
  • Salt & Seasoning to Taste
  1. Cut the Squash in half and scoop out all the seeds.
  2. Drizzle a little oil and sprinkle some salt on the top of the squash.
  3. Turn upside down on baking pan and put in oven at 375 for 40 minutes.
  4. Roast garlic to your liking. (I cut the top off, sprinkled oil and salt on top, covered with foil and put in over with the squash).
  5. Cook bacon to your liking (I prefer extra crispy). Be sure to keep the bacon grease to toss in with the squash.
  6. Poach eggs. I poached one per serving, but you could poach more depending on taste.
  7. After squash has been cooked, remove from the oven and let cool. Using 2 forks, scrape out the squash and put into a big bowl. Add bacon grease to coat squash.
  8. Time to serve!
To serve: Add sqaush to a plate. Sprinkle crumbled bacon pieces and garlic to top of squash. Finally top with a poached egg. The yolk mixed with the bacon grease and squash makes a great sauce. We had plenty of leftovers and were eating this meal all week it was so good.

What other winter dishes should I be trying out?

    This looks really good! I am gluten intolerant, and I have been craving bacon like mad while pregnant, so this is pretty much perfect for me. :)

    This is fantastic! The egg on top really takes it to the next level. Thanks so much for sharing. :-)
