Spaghetti Squash Hash Browns

Did you know you could make Hash Browns with Spaghetti Squash!!!??  My family is not the biggest fan of potatoes but we do like hash browns. I had purchased a spaghetti squash on my grocery trip but had no real plans for it. I made Scotch Eggs for dinner and needed a side. My husband suggested potatoes of some sort but I just wasn't feeling I started poking around and found talk of Spaghetti Squash Browns and thought that would be perfect!
My kids were skeptical but one taste and they were TOTALLY convinced. They LOVED them!!!

1- 3-4lb Spaghetti Squash, baked, seeds removed and strands scraped out
(Mine yielded about 1 lb of strands)

2 TB flour(GF if necessary)
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp black pepper
salt to taste

1/4 cup butter

Squeeze the liquid out of your spaghetti strands as much as possible (Give them some MUSCLE!)

Gently toss with flour, garlic powder, onion powder, pepper and salt.

Preheat a griddle to 350. Add 2 TB butter and allow it to melt.

Place a good sized scoop of the strands onto the hot griddle and press down firmly.

Repeat with remaining.

Cook 7-9 minutes until golden brown. Add 2 more TB butter and melt, then gently flip and cook 6-8 minutes more.

Serve with a touch of hot sauce, or any hashbrown toppings you like.
