Zesty sauerkraut, Swiss cheese and rye bread add Reuben-esque flavor to this surprisingly addictive spaghetti squash skillet recipe. If you can't find seeded rye bread, add 1/2 to 1 teaspoon caraway seeds to the mixture in Step 2. Serve with a green salad tossed with red-wine vinaigrette.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place squash cut-side down in a microwave-safe dish; add 2 tablespoons water. Microwave, uncovered, on High until the flesh is tender, about 10 minutes. (Alternatively, place squash halves cut-side down on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake in a 400 degrees F oven until the squash is tender, 40 to 50 minutes.)

  • Meanwhile, combine eggs, sauerkraut, breadcrumbs, kielbasa, scallion whites and pepper in a large bowl. Let the squash cool for about 10 minutes, then use a fork to scrape it from the shells into the bowl with the sauerkraut mixture.

  • Position rack in upper third of oven; preheat broiler.

  • Heat oil in a large cast-iron or enamel-coated skillet over medium-high heat. Spread the squash mixture evenly in the skillet. Reduce heat to medium and cook, undisturbed, until browned on the bottom, 5 to 8 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese and the reserved scallion greens. Broil until browned on top, 4 to 6 minutes.


Cut Down on Dishes: A rimmed baking sheet is great for everything from roasting to catching accidental drips and spills. For effortless cleanup and to keep your baking sheets in tip-top shape, line them with a layer of foil before each use.
