FRIED YELLOW SUMMER SQUASH

I have been frying this since I could reach the stove. It was always a staple in our home.
We grew yellow, crook neck squash for years growing up & then later on, but when they came out with yellow straight neck, it was much better, because when you pick it, the neck doesn't break as easily.
Towards the end of growing season, I bread up several trays of this & single freeze it on cookie sheets & then store in gallon ziplock freezer bags for all winter. Then just fry as normal, being careful not to throw too many of the frozen ones in at one time, as it will cool your grease down & they will not come out as good.
I hope you enjoy as much as we do.

How to Make FRIED YELLOW SUMMER SQUASH

Step-by-Step

  1. Choose young paler yellow squash that has dropped the bloom.

    Older, darker yellow squash will be tougher & more seedier.
  2. Slice yellow squash, with skin on, about 3/16" thick.
  3. Mix the egg & milk & then drop in the sliced squash.
  4. With flour in another bowl or using your batter pro, dredge in flour, making sure you pat it on to make it adhere to squash good.If using batter pro, no need to pat it on.
  5. Squash is now ready to fry.
  6. Heat about 2" canola oil in cast iron skillet or dutch oven.
  7. Drop squash, one at a time into hot oil, turning only once when the first side is browned.
  8. Let the second half brown & get crispy.
  9. Remove from skillet & place on paper towels to drain. As soon as you take it out, while still hot, salt & pepper it. Cover with another paper towel while you finish the rest of it.
  10. Goes good with anything.
  11. Another way we do this is to bread it as mentioned & then lay it in layers in a pan like fried potatoes & let it crust on bottom before you start turning it over in the pan. It kind of steams it too. It's like cooking fried potatoes.
