Author Aran Goyoaga


  • (1-pound) butternut squash
  • 5 eggs
  • 1/4 cup minced onion
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • Olive oil
  • 1/2 cup sour cream (optional)


  1. Peel the cylindrical top part of the squash and cut into large chunks (keep the round seed cavity for another use). Transfer to a food processor and grate with the grater attachment.
  2. In a large bowl, lightly whisk 1 egg, then mix in the grated squash, onion, cornstarch, and a pinch each of salt and pepper.
  3. Line a plate with paper towels. Heat a sauté pan over medium heat until hot. Add enough olive oil to thinly coat, then heat until hot but not smoking. Place scoops of squash mixture (about 3 tablespoons each) in the pan, gently flatten, and cook until crispy, about 4 minutes per side. Transfer the rosti to the prepared plate and repeat with the remaining squash mixture, adding and heating more oil as needed. Keep warm.
  4. Add a small amount of olive oil to the same pan over medium heat. Crack 2 eggs into the pan, season with salt and pepper, and fry until the edges are crispy and the whites are set. Reserve on a plate. Repeat with the remaining 2 eggs.
  5. Divide the rosti among 4 plates, top with a dollop of sour cream and a fried egg, and serve.
