Roasted Pattypan Squash and Baby Boomer Potatoes

This post is a bit dated since it is now mid-October and most people’s gardens are pretty much spent by now, but I’m only just now getting around to it. But, if you are still lucky enough to have some fresh squash in your area…

Our kind neighbor gave us some home-grown pattypan squash, and the only thing I could think to do with it besides soup was to roast it. I went to the store to buy some fingerling potatoes to go with them, but the bin was flat out. Then I spied this bag of Baby Boomer Potatoes. Not sure what that has to do with my generation (yah, I’m old) but they were the perfect size, and the bag said “great for roasting.” I’m in!

This was a perfectly simple side dish paired with some marinated grilled pork chops. I mixed in some fresh dill, then just roasted the heck out of them until they looked beautifully crisp on the outside (and were wonderfully creamy on the inside.)

Not your everyday side dish, but it’s a great way to use up your or your neighbor’s harvest! I hope you enjoy.

Roasted Pattypan Squash and Baby Boomer Potatoes

1 pound pattypan (or other) squash
1 pound small potatoes (Baby Boomers or otherwise)
1 to 2 tablespoons olive oil to coat
Fresh chopped dill
Salt, pepper, and any other seasonings, to taste

Dill-Seasoned Vegetables

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut the pattypan squash into chunks to match your potato size, to ensure even roasting. Place the squash and potatoes into a bowl, and pour over some olive oil and mix around to distribute evenly. Add the chopped fresh dill, then season with salt, pepper, and any other seasonings, to taste.

Pour bowl of veggies onto a lightly oil-sprayed baking sheet, then evenly distribute them in one layer.

Roast in oven for about 40 minutes, turning over halfway through. Just keep an eye on them in the last half hour and remove if getting too dark.

We served this with grilled marinated pork, but it would go pretty much with any protein of choice.

    Oh it does sound like something that would go well with pork. I’m intrigued by the dill — I wouldn’t have thought of that.
    I haven’t seen patty-pan squash in ages! I loved it. My family used to lightly dredge it in cornmeal and pan fry it. Lovely post, Kathryn. Huge hugs.

      LOL thanks Adam, but by the looks of the radar in Texas, all the squash fields might be under water soon!

    Looks very satisfying. I was struck by the daft name of the potatoes. Madness or genius?

    I really like pattypan squash, but I never saw any at my local farmer’s market this year. They apparently are not particularly popular around here. Hopefully I’ll have better luck finding them next year.

      I hope so too! I didn’t even know it was grown around here until my neighbor gave it to me out of his garden.

      I know you have a hard time finding unique vegetables in your area. Just keep an eye out as best you can, Mimi! I typically don’t see these in the store but the neighbor grew them.

    I love those cute little pattypan squashes but I never roasted them with potatoes. What a great idea.
