Butternut Bacon Browns
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 4
  • 2 slices AIP-friendly bacon (I use Applegate)
  • 2 cups grated butternut squash
  • ¼ cup finely chopped green onion
  • 1 tablespoon arrowroot starch
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  1. Place bacon slices in a large fry pan over medium heat. While they begin to fry, place the rest of the ingredients in a mixing bowl.
  2. Keep checking your bacon and turning it until it is browned and crisp. Remove bacon to a paper towel-lined plate to cool. (Turn heat off while bacon cools.) Reserve bacon grease in the pan.
  3. When cooked bacon is cool enough to handle, crumble it into the mixing bowl. Stir all ingredients to combine.
  4. Turn heat under bacon grease to medium/medium high. Form squash mixture into 4 tight patties. Fry them in the bacon grease until browned on each side, about 4 minutes per side, turning only once. (Alternately, you can leave them fluffy in the pan instead of forming into patties, and turn once in sections.)
