14 Spiralizer Recipes and Ideas
1. Sweet Potato Pancakes
Pancakes break tradition with these cinnamon-nutmeg sweet potato noodle pancakes! Switch out toppings as desired, including vanilla or plain yogurt, pumpkin puree, nut butter, banana, and walnuts.
2. Apple Spiralized Pancakes
Not a sweet potato fan? Give these two ingredient pancakes with cinnamon spiralized apples a try! The spiralized apple mound can further be garnished with nut butter, a dollop of yogurt, or extra cinnamon.
3. Hash Brown Eggs
For a less conventional spin on standard hash browns and eggs, start by spiralizing a potato and onion. Take the shreds and heat through and crisp on a greased skillet over medium heat. Crack an egg or two atop until the white is cooked through and the yolk has reached desired doneness. Top with salsa, avocado, hot sauce, and salt and pepper to taste as preferred. The egg mixture can also be used to fill a large wheat tortilla shell as a big breakfast burrito or small flour or corn tortillas for breakfast tacos.
4. Spiralized Butternut Squash Toast
Although it may be sometimes hard to beat a slice of toast with butter and refreshing fruit preserves, that whole grain slice of bread receives a flavorful makeover with the use of a spiralizer. This spiralized butternut squash toast recipe is complimented with goat cheese and pomegranate seeds, ultimately delivering a creamy, lightly sweetened breakfast or snack option.
