Winter Squash Croquettes

This recipe will work with any of your winter squash. I mash the cooked flesh with a fork, unless I am using spaghetti squash, in which case, I would use a fork to separate the strands of squash. Use any soft cheese you like to add to the mix, or use a hard cheese to stuff in the middle. Experiment with different herbs and spices.


  • About 3 cups of cooked winter squash
  • 1-2 eggs, if desired
  • ½ cup soft cheese
  • ½ cup dried bread crumbs
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


Combine all ingredients except bread crumbs and mix well. Shape mixture into patties, about 1 inch thick. Dredge patties through bread crumbs and pan fry in a well-oiled skillet over medium-hot heat. Cook on both sides until golden brown, then drain on paper towels or newspaper.
