Prep: 10 minsCook: 22 minsTotal: 32 mins
Servings: 4 1x


  • 1 small delicata squash
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • sprinkle of dried basil
  • sprinkle of dried oregano
  • marinara sauce for serving


  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Cut the squash in half and scoop out the seeds.
  3. Cut the squash into thin rings. I set my mandolin to 3mm, but you can eyeball thin slices and use a large, sharp knife.
  4. In one bowl, whisk the egg, garlic powder, and sea salt.
  5. In a second bowl, place the grated Parmesan.
  6. Use one hand to pick up the squash, coat with the egg mixture and drop into the Parmesan bowl.
  7. Use the other hand to coat the squash round in Parmesan and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  8. Sprinkle with dried basil and dried oregano.
  9. Bake for 20 minutes until golden brown. Broil on high for an additional 2 minutes to get them nice and crispy if needed.
  10. Serve with marinara sauce!
