I had several appetizer recipe ideas in mind for this series, and even though I liked them all, none had that special fall flare I was looking for. So back to the drawing board I went, and that’s when I hit upon these Baked Delicata Rings. As soon as I saw them in BHG, I knew they needed an IBC twist.

So What is Delicata?

Delicata is a type of squash that’s become popular in recent years because it doesn’t need to be peeled. The name refers to its rather delicate (and completely edible) skin. The squash is typically smaller in size, too, which makes it perfect for this recipe!

What I especially love about this particular recipe is the flavor combination. You get sweetness from the delicata, saltiness from the breading, and creamy freshness from the herb dip. It’s a heady trio.

How Do You Make Baked Delicata Rings?

The process is fairly simple. If you’ve ever breaded something, it’s essentially the same.

Start by preparing the delicata squash. Wash it thoroughly and slice it in half. Then, use a melon baller or spoon to remove the seeds. (If you’re feeling ambitious, you can save the seeds and roast them like pumpkin seeds!)

Next, slice the squash into rings.

Now you’re ready to bread the rings! First, dip them into flour; then dip them in a mixture of mayo, buttermilk, and dijon mustard.

After that, given them a final dip in a mixture of bread crumbs, parmesan, and spices. As you can see, these little rings are layered with flavored.

Once breaded, place the delicata rings on a baking sheet that’s been prepared with aluminum foil and cooking spray.

Bake them on one side and then flip and bake them on the other. This ensures that both sides are nicely browned and crispy.

While the breaded delicata rings bake, make the creamy herb dip by whisking together mayo, sour cream, buttermilk, fresh herbs, garlic, salt, and pepper.

Looking for a delicious fall appetizer recipe? These Baked Delicata Rings with Creamy Herb Dip are a unique snack that's ideal for this time of year!
Ingredients
  • 3 standard-sized delicata squash
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 2/3 cup buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons dijon mustard
  • 2 cups bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
Creamy Herb Dip:
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh chives
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh thyme
  • 1 medium garlic clove finely chopped
  • Kosher salt and ground black pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Begin by preheating your oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Then, line two baking sheets with foil and spray with a non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
  3. Wash your delicata squash and then cut in in half. Use a spoon or melon baller to scoop out the seeds. Then, slice each half into 1/2-inch-thick rings. Discard the end pieces.
  4. Next, you'll need three dishes. In the first dish, place the flour. In the second dish, whisk together the mayonnaise, buttermilk and dijon mustard. And in the third dish, whisk together the bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, parsley, salt, and pepper.
  5. Begin by dipping a delicata squash ring into the flour. Shake off any excess flour. Then dip the ring into the mayonnaise mixture, again allow any excess to drip off. Finally, coat the ring with the bread crumb mixture and place it on a prepared baking sheet. Repeat this process with the remaining rings.
  6. Bake the rings for about 15 minutes or until the bottoms begin to brown. Remove the rings from the oven and turn each one over. Place them back in the oven and bake for 10-15 more minutes or until the rings are nicely browned and tender.
  7. Meanwhile, prepare the creamy herb dip by whisking together mayonnaise, sour cream, buttermilk, herbs, garlic, salt, and pepper.
  8. Serve the baked delicata rings warm with the creamy herb dip.
