I just harvested two more summer squash from my container garden yesterday and there are two more coming right behind them. So I decided I would make some fried squash patties for lunch yesterday. (yum-yum) One of my earliest childhood memories is of my mother making fried squash and my brother & I would eat it as fast as she could pull it out of the pan. She would always say “You’re going to burn your fingers.” We didn’t care. 🙂 By the way, my mom has a cooking blog and is a fantastic cook so if you are interested in some great recipes you can check her out at Cooking in Cleveland. And you should see the pictures of her urban garden too. This is the recipe my grandmother gave me that her mother passed down to her. Sorry mom, I should of asked you for your recipe first, but was really hungry and in a hurry to fry these squash up! 🙂
· 2 eggs, beaten
· 1/4 cup milk
· 1/2 teaspoon salt
· 2 med summer squash, sliced thinly
· 1 1/2 cups flour or cornmeal (I had flour)
Combine eggs, milk, and salt in a bowl. Place flour or cornmeal in a separate bowl. Dip squash in the egg mixture, then roll in flour or cornmeal coating it well. Then fry in skillet with about 1 inch of hot oil on med-high heat until golden brown.
Don’t these look yummy? I would of saved you a few but my family gobbled them up before they even had a chance to cool off! 🙂
