5-Ingredient Butternut Squash Fritters
Source: Just a Taste, September 14, 2015
5 cups butternut squash, lightly packed*
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 1/2 tablespoons minced fresh sage
In a large bowl, combine the shredded butternut squash, flour, eggs, minced sage, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper to the bowl, stirring until the mixture is combined. Line a plate with paper towels.
Liberally coat the bottom of a large sauté pan with vegetable oil and place it over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, scoop 3-tablespoon mounds of the mixture into the pan, pressing them lightly into rounds and spacing them at least 2 inches apart. Cook the fritters for 2 to 3 minutes, then flip them once and cook an additional 2 minutes until golden brown and cooked throughout. Transfer the fritters to the paper towel-lined plate and immediately sprinkle them with salt. Repeat the scooping and cooking process with the remaining mixture.
*Butternut squash can be peeled and then shredded on either the large hole of a box grater or, to save time, in a food processor.
