We are approaching Halloween and everyone is preparing for a spooky night. However, the most exciting part of Halloween is the decoration - a pumpkin should not be missing there. But the question that arises every year is: "What am I going to cook with the pumpkin gut leftovers?" I have a delicious solution which is very quick and easy to make. These tasty pumpkin-cheese patties are perfect for the day after your Halloween night, when everything else seems to involve a bit too much effort. What you will need: - 1kg Pumpkin - Salt, Pepper - 4-6 tablespoons of flour - 250g of Feta - 3 eggs - 1/2 bunch of fresh dill - Olive Oil - 2 tablespoons of chopped pumpkin seeds What to do: - Separate the pumpkin seeds from the rest of the pumpkin gut. - Place the pumpkin gut in a sieve and salt it slightly. Let it sit for 20 minutes. - Squeeze the pumpkin-salt mix well to get rid of all the water and put it into a bowl. - Spread flour over the mix. - Roughly divide and add the feta, the whisked eggs and chopped dill to the bowl. Mix it all together. - Put oil into a pan, place one spoon of the mixture into the pan and fry it until it is golden brown on both sides. - Lastly, add some of the pumpkin seeds on top. - Enjoy!
