I sometimes use celery root for this (not a squash but really yummy!).

Could someone give a review of the taste and texture of this? I assume it doesn't really taste like potato. (Which is fine, just curious.) And is the texture fibrous like some squash can be?

Just trying to decide if I could sneak this one past my squash-hating husband. He loves scrambled eggs and making some kind of cheesy hash to go with it seems like it might be nice.

if you have ever had butternut squash, the texture is a lot like that but maybe a bit softer once cooked. The taste is less sweet but similer.

my opinion.

My husband doesn't like squash AT ALL (summer or winter varieties). I made these with delicata and he ate them. He said he'd eat anything cooked with bacon and onions.

Mine isn't a squash fan, either. I'm wondering which squash everyone considers to be the least sweet tasting? Are the Delicata only semi-sweet?

(I've never cooked a squash in my life),

I think all winter squash are sweet tasting. Have you tried rutabaga or celery root? Those also make nice hashbrowns (they aren't starchy like potatoes but I think all root veggies make great hash type side dishes).

These are definitely on the sweet side, similar to sweet potatoes.

Thanks, Angie. I'm missing me some hash browns, so I'll try your suggestions. Will also try the squash, which I'm sure I'll like even if the hubs doesn't. (He'll eat it, though...he eats everything I cook LOL).

I think any root or squash cooked with this method will turn out excellent. The bacon and onion really make this dish. DH really likes onion flavor, so I just chop up white onion instead of green. If you miss hash browns, these are great.

I finally found the delicatas, and tried this tonight. I made it almost exactly as shown, except I had some leftover finely diced onions, so those went in with the bacon (I also used green onions). My seasonings were salt, freshly ground black pepper and red pepper flakes. I let them saute long enough to get soft and nicely browned. I thought they were excellent.

The husband (who I've posted before does not like any squash at all) actually admitted they were 'not gross' but they were too sweet for him. I liked them a lot and passed the recipe on to my folks.

I made these yesterday, except that I shredded the delicata squash. Everybody loved them, except that I would prefer them to be less sweet. The next time that I make it, I'll use a less sweet squash.

We fry summer squash w/ bacon, onions, salt and pepper. It's one of our favorite things!

Have you tried white acorn squash? I think that one is less sweet.

Has anyone tried this recipe with the addition of cheese and jalapenos? Used to love them that way at Waffle House (in my high carb days!)

A couple of years ago, we had a lot of winter squash, including pumpkin, and I used them all this way. Each kind worked. I even added garlic and dill sometimes.

This recipe helped me to try winter squash in place of potatoes for other dishes, too. I made stew w/ squash frequently, and the kids and DH loved it!

Such a great idea!
