Baked Pumpkin Patties Recipe: This Pumpkin Patties Recipe Is the New Thanksgiving Side Dish on the Block

Baked, not fried, these pretty orange pumpkin patties make a great Thanksgiving side dish or lunch. Make smaller patties for a fun appetizer and serve them with low-fat yogurt or vegan yogurt tzatziki for dipping.

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes
Servings: 6


  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large russet potato
  • 2 cups canned pumpkin puree
  • 4 scallions, trimmed and thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint or 1 tablespoon dried mint
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh dill
  • 1 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup plain bread crumbs

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Fill a medium saucepan with water and add salt. Place over high heat and bring to a boil. Carefully add potato. Reduce heat to medium and parboil potato 10 minutes. Remove potato and place in a bowl of ice water. When cool enough to handle, peel off the skin with the dull side of a knife. Coarsely grate the potato into a large bowl.
  2. Add pumpkin, scallions, garlic, egg, mint, dill, feta, pepper and bread crumbs. Mix with a rubber spatula.
  3. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
  4. Form about 2 tablespoons pumpkin mixture into a ball and flatten into a small patty. Place on prepared baking sheet. Repeat with remaining mixture, spacing the patties about 1 inches apart.
  5. Spray the tops of the patties with nonstick cooking spray. Bake 10 minutes, then flip and bake another 10 minutes. Serve warm.
