Growing up we always fried our yellow squash and zucchini. My sister and I decided to try a low fat version. I fixed it for my husband and now that's the only way he wants it!
It's yummy, easy and better for you this way. And you don't have to stand over it. You can spend your time fixing the rest of your meal. Hope you will enjoy it too.

How to Make Baked, Not Fried Squash


  1. Spray baking sheet with Butter flavored spray, Pam or store brand.
    Preheat oven to 400.
  2. Slice squash or zucchini.

    Roll in flour/cornmeal mixture. ( I use about half cup each. More if needed, depending on the quantity I'm fixing.)
  3. Place on baking sheet and spray top side with butter spray until well coated. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

    Bake at 400 degrees until starts browning. Turn over and bake a bit longer to brown other side.
