Easy Eats: Grilled Honey Mustard Pork Loin with Spaghetti Squash

September 18, 2016

Grilled Honey Mustard Pork Loin With Grilled Spaghetti Squash

It’s time already for this week’s Easy Eats Recipe! After being told about the texture of cooked Grilled Spaghetti Squash feeling similar to Spaghetti Noodles I became slightly skeptical about grilling it. Mainly because I am a huge lover of carbs & it seemed unnatural for a Squash to have the name of a traditional Noodle. Once I was all done grilling, however I was really surprised by how delightful this meal ended up being- Spaghetti Squash and all.

To begin I cleaned the outer skin of the Spaghetti Squash. It is really important with all produce to clean the outer skin prior to cutting into it. Otherwise when you slice into the Squash all of the elements that have had contact with the outside of the fruit will be pushed into the edible insides of the fruit.

Next I sliced the squash in half and doused it with the Olive Oil prior to wrapping it in tin foil and placing it on the grill. The results of all of this prep work were truly delectable and I thought the Honey Mustard Pork Loin was the perfect combination with the Spaghetti Squash.

Spaghetti SquashThe dot of butter plus a little bit of salt and pepper was a delicious addition to the Noodle texture of the Spaghetti Squash, however next time I think I will try adding some Brown Sugar to have a different flavor.

I hope this recipe was as easy and delicious as it was for me! Comment with your different Squash grilling variations- I’d love to swap techniques!

Until then, Happy Grilling Easy Eaters!
