EatingWell Wednesday - Parmesan and Butternut Squash Pancakes

My mom is visiting and loves to try all sorts of different recipes. She mentioned making some type of potato pancake so while browsing ideas on EatingWell, I found this one called 'Parmesan and Squash pancakes and I knew it was one to be tried.

The only change I made was to use Butternut Squash instead of Summer Squash. Although I tried to squeeze out the excess water and felt I did a good job, I did notice water building as the mixture sat a few minutes. I was a bit concerned but plowed ahead and there were no ill effects.

I enjoyed the flavor but my husband did not enjoy the texture so I think the way to address that is to make 6 thinner pancakes instead of the suggested 4. I also think this could be a fun party appetizer if you made them mini -sized (shorten cooking time)



Let me know what you think if you give this a try.

Sometimes when I cook with squash I find the result watery if I don't let it simmer long enough. Was that what he meant?

Looks and sounds delicious! I love butternut squash anyway and am always looking for new ways to prepare it.

Thanks for sharing!

Sounds like an interesting dish! I love parmesan and butternut squash, though, so I think I'd probably like it quite a bit!
