Delicata Squash Burger Patties

(5)

Hey vegetarians! I came up with a scrumptious way to eat burgers. And this weird striped little squash. I'm not a vegetarian anymore, but I still make it often because it's so good! Serve in burgers, or by itself with a side of green salad, rice or potatoes. This also makes for a wonderful ravioli stuffing.

Yield:
4 patties

Ingredients

  • 1 delicata squash, halved lengthwise and seeded

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil (Optional)

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 1 shallot, minced

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 6 sun-dried tomatoes, chopped

  • 1 cup bread crumbs, or more if needed

  • 1 egg, beaten

  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese

  • ¼ cup vegetable oil, or as needed

Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 475 degrees F (245 degrees C).

  2. Place squash on a baking sheet; drizzle with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven until tender, about 45 minutes. Remove and cool. Cut into cubes.

  4. Heat butter in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir shallot and garlic in the melted butter until shallot is transparent, 5 to 10 minutes. Add sun-dried tomatoes; cook until softened, 2 to 3 minutes. Mash squash cubes into shallot mixture until relatively smooth. Remove from heat, transfer mixture to a bowl, and cool for 2 to 3 minutes.

  5. Stir bread crumbs, egg, and Parmesan cheese into squash mixture. Add more bread crumbs if mixture is too sticky. Season with salt and pepper. Shape mixture into 4 patties.

  6. Heat vegetable oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat; cook patties in the hot oil until browned, 4 to 5 minutes per side.

Cook's Note:

You can either leave the mixture chunky or puree in a food processor before forming into patties.

For the ravioli stuffing, omit the bread crumbs and egg and stop at step 5 before forming into patties.

Editor's Note:

We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.
