Grilled Pattypan Squash recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen

My love for pattypan squash has reached an all new level. You might think I’d be tired of these squash by now, but I am still thrilled to have so many from our garden.

We grilled these pattypan squash with the Ono and they were wonderful together. The squash texture was absolutely perfect.

My only advice is to make sure that your slices are as even as possible. If your slices are not even, then the thinner portions will be overcooked while the thicker ones are still finishing.

I’m happy to have the perfect use now for the random over-sized squash that appear in the garden every so often.

Remember to season pattypans generously. This is a very mild tasting squash and will be rather bland on it’s own.

Grilled Pattypan Squash

5 from 1 vote


  • Large pattypan squash
  • Olive oil
  • kosher salt coarse sea salt or kosher salt
  • Freshly cracked pepper


  • Wash the squash, cut out the stem and trim the bottom of the squash as well. Make thin horizontal slices through the width of the squash. I made ours about 1/2" to 3/4" thick and they grilled beautifully.
  • Brush both sides of the slices with olive oil. Sprinkle liberally with salt and pepper. Grill approximately 8-10 minutes, or until tender. Turn once as the squash is cooking.

    When I had a garden (sniff, sniff, bye community patch! waaaboohoooo), these were my favorite things to grow. I mean, they're so CUTE! I know we shouldn't care about food being cute, but seriously? Adorable.

    Even the name–pattypan! Love it.

    Um, I think I am going to ask you to adopt me, despite the fact that I am older than you. This blog is so purdy and all the food looks so delicious. At first I thought I wanted to make it all myself and now I'm pretty sure I just want to be the world's oldest living adopted child. 😛

    OK, you are amazing. I have been looking over your blog and am now STARVING. This post especially made me smile, as last year we got patty pan squash in our CSA haul and I made fun of them for being stupid-looking … when in fact the only stupid one was me, since I did not know how to cook them. But now I have the key to stupidity prevention, and it is this post.

    I love the idea of scoring the flesh. Cooks so evenly, and the oil and seasoning gets distributed throughout.5 stars
