Delicata Squash Burger Patties

"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."

  • Ready In

  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.

I made these as-written, except that I used crumbled goat cheese in place of the parmesan. We really enjoyed the flavor--particularly the sun-dried tomatoes--but there just wasn't enough textur...
