A CookTale

Our magical vegetable garden is producing a crop of White Patty Pans, each are at least 5 inches in diameter, and they resemble flying saucers. All that I’ve ever seen at Farmer Markets were yellow and no more than a few inches across. When roasted, the meat of the Squash turns to a custard. Absolutely a scrumptious and unexpected taste treat. Try to find Patty Pans as large as possible, I’m sure the result will be similar.


1 Large Patty Pan Squash (cut horizontally half)
1 TB of EVOO for brushing
Kosher Salt & White Pepper


1. Heat the oven to 450 degrees
2. Place the Patty Pans on a baking sheet, brush with EVOO
& sprinkle on the Kosher Salt & White Pepper.
3. Roast for 30 minutes or until the Patty Pan’s shell has started to brown.
4. Remove & plate.

Note: With smaller Patty Pans simply slice the top off & proceed with the recipe.
