Spaghetti Doughnuts

Monday, February 20, 2012

UPDATE!  These Spaghetti Doughnuts were the recipe of the day for 2/27/12 on Fast Paleo
*Sigh* Do you remember those days when breakfast consisted of a doughnut and an extra large Nesquik? I sure do!
I also remember the resulting amount of insulin I'd have to take for it.

I've been thinking about doughnuts lately and even bought a doughnut pan, cuz I have nefarious plans for it. I guess we could start with this very perfidious one.
Earlier this evening we were sitting down to one of my favorite meals, Paleo Spaghetti. It's one of the most basic paleo recipes you should have in your repertoire (seriously, what's easier than cooking spaghetti squash, meat, sauce, and throwing it together in a bowl?)
Yet as I was eating, the husband looked over at me and (as many couples who have been married a number of years will know) sensed that something was on my mind. So he asked what's up.
"My inner mad scientist is chattering."
The husband, warily: "Whaaaat are you thiiiinking?" (cuz thoughts like that tend to get me into trouble)
"Spahgetti doughnuts."
*blink* "It's not wha-"
"It's wrong on so many levels."
*laughing* "Just let me finish"
The husband, not impressed, was still wary

What you'll need:

1/2 spaghetti squash, baked (this is a great recipe if you just had paleo spaghetti and need to use the other half of the squash)
1 lb ground beef, preferably grass fed (or pork, if you can get it pastured)
6 eggs
3/4c spaghetti sauce
1 can tomato paste
Parmesan (optional)
doughnut pan

Preheat oven 350F.

String out your baked spaghetti into a bowl.

Brown ground beef, and combine with squash. Add sauce. And ridiculous amount of grated/shredded parmesan if that's your kind of thing.

Scramble eggs and combine thoroughly with spaghetti.

When combined, it should move pretty fluidly- like cake batter.

Carefully place into doughnut pan

Bake until set, about 25-30 mins

And don't try to get creative by spinning this into pizza doughnuts either, cuz I already came up with that brain child *neener* :oP

I'm doing this for a Harry Potter Marathon on Saturday! No one will forget my (eh..hmm...your) Magic Spaghetti Flying Saucers...okay, I'll just call them PJF Spaghetti Donuts. When is your PJF Cookbook being released and have you spoken with any agents yet, because I have some ideas. :) (evil laugh)

Hey if you know agents with real connections, tell me. I have some novels I want to get on the market! Cookbooks... I don't think I'm really "worthy" yet. Also, I don't think I have enough to fill a cookbook yet. Half a cookbook, maybe :)

ok, this is fabulous/hilarious/genius.
the cheese crust on these looks so snacky-yumtastic.
let's be honest here... you're a dreamer of the "things that shouldn't be done, but thank goodness we did it" variety.
