Directions

  1. In a medium-size bowl, mix together the crumbled bread, parsley, bread crumbs, and grated cheese. Set this aside. Heat the oil in a medium-size skillet over medium heat, then add the onion, pepper, and corn. Saute the vegetables until soft, about 7 minutes, stirring often. Mix in the garlic, chili powder, and cumin and cook it all for another minute. Remove the skillet from the heat and spoon the contents into the bread crumb mixture.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the egg, pumpkin, and ricotta. Add the bread crumb mixture, stirring thoroughly, then season with the salt and pepper. Flour your hands, then shape the mixture into six 3/4-inch-thick patties, using about 1/3 cup for each one. Dredge the patties in bread crumbs and refrigerate them for about 1 1/2 hours.
  3. Melt the butter in a large skillet. Transfer the patties to the skillet and fry them over medium heat until they turn golden, about 4 minutes on each side. Remove them from the skillet and serve right away. Makes 6 patties.
  4. Test kitchen tip: The crumbled bread is essential to the texture, and prepared bread crumbs shouldn't be substituted. Set out the bread slices for about 30 minutes to air-dry, then crumble them by hand, with a serrated knife, or in a food processor.
