Who doesn’t love that cheesy creamy hash brown casserole that usually makes an appearance around the holidays? If you are trying to avoid potatoes, this is a great substitute…Spaghetti Squash Au Gratin.
It’s lower in fat, calories and carbs. What more could you ask for? Oh and it tastes good too!
I used plain Greek yogurt in place of the sour cream which adds about triple the amount of protein and subbed spaghetti squash for the hash browns. There is a recipe similar floating around Pinterest, but the one I saw used sour cream and hardly any cheese. If calories weren’t a concern I’d probably use even more, but this is supposed to be a healthy substitute for your typical potato au gratin dish.
I used a sharp cheddar and parmigiano reggiano (the good stuff) but I think Gruyere would be soooo good. This dish would go great with any protein- lamb, ham, grilled chicken, fish, beef or would make an excellent addition to a vegetarian plate. I can see myself making this often since it would go well with so many things!
If you are looking for a great, healthy Holiday side dish that’s easy too, look no further.
