Toaster Oven-Baked Butternut Squash Fritters

These butternut squash fritters taste amazing, and as always with me, are easy and quick to make in a toaster oven. I love these fritters for breakfast with some sour cream. They are also a great way to sneak veggies onto the plates of your picky eaters – and make sure to prepare a big stack of them, because it’s impossible to eat just one.


  • 5 cups butternut squash, shredded
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon fresh sage, minced
  • 2/3 cup flour (we used white whole wheat)
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt, more or less to taste


  1. Preheat your oven to 400F (200C). Lightly grease the pan.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine shredded butternut squash, eggs, minced sage, salt and pepper. Fold in flour and add more if needed in order to hold fritters together.
  3. Add olive oil to a large skillet over medium heat, and heat until the oil sizzles when a drop of water is added. Drop 1/4 cup of the mixture at a time, making sure to keep the fritters at least 1-inch apart.
  4. Bake for 20-25 minutes, flipping them once midway through. They are ready when both sides are nicely browned and they are cooked through. Serve hot or cold with a dollop of vegan sour cream, or your favourite dipping sauce.



PS. I got the initial idea from this article.
