Cheesy Pumpkin Squares


Bet you never knew you could do this with pumpkin.



  • 1/4 (300 grams kabocha pumpkin
  • 40 grams potato starch
  • Pinch of salt
  • 120 grams cream cheese
  • 60 grams shredded cheese
  • 6 slices prosciutto
  • 1 tablespoon butter

Let's get Cooking...

  1. Peel and slice kabocha pumpkin and place into a bowl. Wrap with plastic and microwave for 5 minutes at 600 watts. Mash the kabocha pumpkin. Add potato starch and salt. Mix well. Divide and mold into 6 balls.
  2. Pick up one kabocha ball and flatten in the palm of your hand. Place a slice of prosciutto on top. Top with cream cheese and shredded cheese. Roll everything into a nice ball, making sure ingredients are completely enclosed inside the kabocha mixture. Flatten the balls into squares.
  3. Heat butter in a frying pan. Place the pumpkin squares on and cook for 3 minutes on medium heat. Flip them over and cook for an additional 3 minutes or until both sides are nicely browned.
