These tasty fritters are both sweet and savory, and came from a combination of a few recipes I found online. The result was perfect, and I had to share! This recipe is perfect as a side dish for a potluck, or an appetizer at a party. They're great hot, and still delicious at room temperature.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut the pumpkin in half, scoop out the goop (and reserve the seeds to bake later!).
  2. Roast the pumpkin at 375 F for about an hour.
  3. Scoop out the cooked pumpkin and mash or puree.
  4. Add the egg yolks to the mashed pumpkin.
  5. Using a stand or hand mixer, beat the egg whites until they are foamy and form soft peaks.
  6. Fold the egg white into the pumpkin, and mix in the remaining ingredients.
  7. Spray a large pan with cooking spray.
  8. Over medium heat, drop a spoonful of the pumpkin mixture into the pan. One spoonful will create a 2-3 inch fritter. To make your life easier, cook no more than four fritters at once.
  9. After approximately 2 minutes, flip the fritter.
  10. After 2 minutes on the second side, set aside.
  11. Continue with the remaining batter until you're done!
