  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Place butternut squash, cut-side up, in a 9x13-inch baking dish; cover with aluminum foil.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until squash is tender, about 45 minutes. Cool slightly. Scoop flesh from butternut squash and transfer to a bowl; mash.
  4. Cook and stir pine nuts in a dry, heavy skillet over medium heat until toasted and fragrant, 3 to 5 minutes.
  5. Stir pine nuts, rice, bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, basil, egg, ginger root, garlic, salt, and black pepper into mashed butternut squash until evenly combined; shape into patties.
  6. Heat oil in a heavy skillet over medium heat; cook patties, working in batches, until crispy and browned, 3 to 5 minutes per side.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Great way to use up left over cooked squash and rice. Can put together in a few minutes if squash and rice are pre-cooked. I melted fresh mozzarella cheese on top. Can coat patties with bread crumbs before frying for a crispier texture.

Yummy.. my only change was to use a spicy salt. I love butternut squash, but I like it best with a little heat to offset the sweet

Loved it! I left out the pine nuts, basil, and ginger.

This was quick and tasty. I couldn't be bothered to roast the squash, so I microwaved it in a glass dish with a little water--only took 10 min. I did sqeeze it out a bit, so it wasn't too wate...
