I made these in 1970 for my mother, she used to eat squash balls at Morrson's Cafe in Terrill,Texas and had told me a number of times how much she would love to have them again. So I tried many times before I got it right, and so glad I did, because I lost my mother to cancer in 1979. I think of her every time I make these.

How to Make Squash Balls

Step-by-Step

  1. In medium bowl mix 4 cups bread crumbs and next 7 ingredients. Let set about 5 min. To let your squash weep that is your moisture
  2. Make into balls ( about the size of golf balls )
  3. Roll balls in the extra 2 cups bread crumbs
