These butternut squash fritters are a great way to use winter squash. This healthy side dish recipe has the perfect combination of sweet and savory flavors.

We get so much butternut squash in our farm share during the fall.

By “so much,” I mean I’ve gotten as many as 7 squashes at one farm share pick up. A few years ago, I went to my children’s elementary school to pick them up, and I handed out squashes to some of the other parents. I felt like I was going to be dubbed the crazy squash lady, but it was better than trying to find a place to fit them all in my kitchen.

My family doesn’t love squash, so I’m always looking for unique ways to prepare it. Winter squash usually takes a while to cook, but this recipe is an exception. These fritters take just a few minutes to cook. Their flavor is a great combination of sweet and savory.

Butternut Squash Fritters Tips

The squash doesn’t need to be pre-cooked. Simply grate it with a hand grater or food processor, then stir it together with the other ingredients.

These squash fritters are so easy to make!

You can save a little time by buying peeled squash, but it’s less expensive to buy a whole squash and peel it yourself. Just make sure to use a sharp knife to cut through it.

Diced pecans add a nice flavor and texture to these butternut squash fritters. You can add a little chili powder or hot sauce if desired, and adjust the salt to your tastes.

    This looks and sounds delicious!
    Do you think that a food processor would work instead of grating by hand?
    I want to make this! I will add some finely minced rosemary for fun.
