makes 4-8 patties

1 large acorn squash, cut in half, seeds removed
4-6 strips bacon, diced
2 eggs
2 tablespoons coconut flour
salt and pepper, to taste

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut your squash in half and place your squash open side, face down on a baking sheet. Roast your squash for 25-30 minutes. Once your squash is soft when you poke its skin, remove it from the oven to cool. Then cook your bacon in a medium pan until cooked through, and place on a paper towel to soak up the excess fat. Reserve 2 tablespoons of bacon fat in your pan after your bacon in done cooking. Scoop out your acorn squash into a bowl and add your bacon, eggs, coconut flour, and salt and pepper. Mix thoroughly until eggs are broken up completely. Use a spoon to scoop out a large spoonful of mixture and add to your hot bacon fat pan. Cook each patty for 3-5 minutes then use a spatula to flip it over and press down and cook for another 3-5 minutes. You just want to create a crust on each side of the patty. Repeat.
