Squash patties

Take 1 cup cooked squash (I used leftover baked butternut) and mix one duck egg thoroughly into the mash. Add 1/4 cup cooked wild rice and two table spoons of corn meal. Spoon into hot griddle with sunflower or squash oil and fry until crisp on both sides. I like the way the egg gives it some lift and binds the patty together.

I really like Andrew's squash patties...but I decided to try my own. This is a bit of a different variation of the recipe above.

2 packed cups of minced butternut squash (not cooked)

1/8 cup of maple sugar

3 tablespoons of corn flour

1 tablespoon of sweet fern

1 tsp of kosher sale

pinch of leek salt

1 tablespoon of butternut squash oil

1 beaten duck egg

tablespoon of sunflower oil for pan

mix everything together - egg should help to bind ingredient.

put oil in pan over medium heat on stovetop. put a large spoonful of the mixture in the pan once the oil has started to get warm. flatten the mixture so it works like a pancake. My patties were not too small but not too big. (pictures posted on facebook page).  Let sit for 3 minutes on each size - enough for them to be crispy. this was a pretty good mixture...I certainly gobbled them up...but I could see this go on the sweet side too...leave out leek salt and sweet fern and go...more maple sugar, crab apple sauce perhaps and some pecans?!
