I tried the squash in a chicken soup, thinking it could take the place of potatoes. It soaked up too much of the broth and turned everything mushy--an unappetizing orange sort of mushy!

I tried it in a stew and it turned out pretty much the same. They do not fair well when cooked in liquid like soups and stews. I thought for sure I had posted that in 1 of these threads.

Turnips replace potatoes very well in stew!!
The squash is a nice change, but it does not take the place of potatoes.
I have given up potatoes, and quite frankly I haven't missed them much.

I haven't had potatoes in 3 year and don't miss them either; however, Keven's Bacon squash browns REALLY were like cottage home-fried potatoes to me anyway and a nice surprise to have something simalar to potatoes again. My DH doesn't like any kind of squash, so I just had that all to myself one night for dinner and made them somethng else! Yummo!

I tried this for dinner the other night along with my meat portion. It was so delicious!

But, my blood sugar went the highest it has ever gone since I started low carb!! I was so-o-o-o disapointed!!! For those whose blood sugars aren't affected, you have one fantastic dish!

I tried these last night. Delicious! Don't check bloos sugar so don't know about that aspect. I am now waiting to try them in my taco filling recipe. Old family recipe that uses green pepper, onion, and one large diced potato along with ground beef. I think this might fill the bill nicely! Now to just find a LC corn tortilla. Thanks Kevin - again!

Kevin, am I correct in understanding that, when freezing the cubed delicata squash, you did NOT blanch it before vacuum sealing? Does freezing make the cubes too soft to pan fry? I've never even seen delicata in the stores here, but if I manage to get my hands on some, I'd like to freeze it for later use.

Thanks, Ginny.

Thats right Ginny but I did not keep them long in the freezer before i had used them all up. I should get a better idea this year as to how they react to longer term freezing.

Kevin, did you find your seeds localy or did you have to order them? I looked every where this year in Colorado and couldn't find them .
Also can I making your hash browns with frozen squash without them going mushy? Thanks

Midnight, I can't find them locally either so I ordered them online from burpees last year. Since I grew them from seeds this year I will be drying out the seed this year and using the seed from my homegrown squash from here on out since they were grown here and tempered more for our climate thus being a heartier seed for my use. As I said, I didn't do any long term freezing but the ones that I did freeze did not get overly mushy. I will know better this year since my crop this year will allow me to freeze more for a longer time. HTH

What I normally use is Butterball turkey bacon which is what you see in the picture. I also use a brand from Sam's Club ( I'm having a Duh! monent here so I don't remember the name ) which is even beter yet. I am going to Sam's in a day or two. I'll check the name and post it for you.

High Liner Atlantic Cod Loins(frozen). Best cod I have ever eaten. There is a picture of the package in the following thread.

yumm, I love cod but have been very disappointed in some of the frozen fish I have purchased. Thanks for the tip, I appreciate the info and will def pick some up! That recipe looks great. Do you think it would still be good if I leave out the carbquick and just bread it with parm cheese?

I found some delicata today! There were at least half a dozen types of squash, many of which I'd never heard of. Usually at the store I just grab what I'm familiar with and don't take the time to look around. I love that about this site - gets me trying new things I didn't even know existed!

Kevin, is that butter you're using for frying in the photos?

I noticed delicatas in the grocery last week, so I made a hash with them, onions and left-over rotisserie chicken. (I also put in some basil and red pepper flakes, salt and pepper.)

Then I fried a couple of eggs and put them on top. OHHHHH man! That slightly runny yolk over the hash-delish! Hubby loved it. That was a yummy brunch.

I've made "hash browns" from acorn squash, turnips, radish and daikon.
