spaghetti squash (see last post for cooking instructions)
1/4 Cup diced celery
Flour (I used about 3 cups for the whole batch)
2 Cups diced carrots
2 Cups crushed fresh crutons
2 Eggs whisked (3-4 eggs will make it breakfast)
1/2 Cup diced chicken breast
2 Teaspoons vanilla extract
1 tablespoon milk
Olive oil to fry with.
Wisk eggs in a separate bowl, with milk and vanilla extract.
Prepare veggies, chicken, crutons, egg mixture. Mix all ingredients together except for the flour.
Add 2 cups of flour to the mixture.
Start to flatten out into a patties, one at a time.
Measure out a half cup of flour for each patty. Add half to the top. Add the other half to the top. Pat a little extra flour into the patty if too liqudy.
Use olive oil, and add about a half inch to the botton of the pan.
Fry on medium heat, until crispy brown on both sides. Flip often to cook evenly.
Make in batches. I cud only fit five at a time with a large wok.
Sprinkle a little italian seasoning on each one.
Tomorrow I will be writing two different recipes using; spaghetti sqaush. They may be served together, using a half a spaghetti squash for each.
I'm looking forward to cooking with spaghetti squash for the first time. :) See yall tomorrow. Yes, there will be pictures.
Cut spaghetti squash in half. Scoop out seeds.
I like to roast my seeds with olive oil and italian seasoning and garlic salt.
Brush bottom of baking dish with olive oil and drizzle some ontop of squash.
Bake @350° for an hour.
With a fork scrape the sides for a stringy affect, down to the skin without breaking through.

Add sprinkles of italian seasonings, garlic, and onion powder.
Flip half way through cooking and cook evenly on both sides.

How to cook the veggies:
Cut veggies thick enough to hold them together. Bite size chunks. Zucchini and summer quash can be cut into wedges by cutting down the middle into 4 quaters and chopping into bites size pieces. Whole mushrooms can be cut into wedges, by cutting into 4ths.
Sautee veggies into the olive oil from the fish. Keep on low heat and add a little more olive oil.
Add seasonings to veggies.

Homemade Bagel Bites
1. mini bagels
2. sauce (I used the left over spaghetti sauce)
3. toppings (pinapple, pepperoni, peppers, onions, cheese, or anything)
These were a big hit at my house! Especially with my husband! It's way better for him than eating the processed food they sell in the frozen section. It's interesting to take something you find in the frozen section, and make it at home. With real ingredients and fresh produce, anything can be made healthier. There is no need to eat like a rabbit. :)
Brush bottom of the pan and bottom of bagels with olive oil.
