A Smarter Way to Eat Bacon
While salty, smoky bacon gets front billing in this delicious bake, spaghetti squash is the secret star, serving as a low-carb crust. The recipe, from Diabetic Living Eat Smart Lose Weight, has you roast a three-pound squash until it's tender; then, you use a fork to scrape out the flesh and mix it with eggs, shredded Parmesan and fresh sage leaves. Spread it into a baking dish and bake and you've got a golden-brown base for the filling: sautéed Swiss chard, kale or spinach; crispy bacon; and, crumbled feta cheese. The finished dish is a bit like a savory tart, and is even better served alongside a fried egg.
