PATTYPAN (Sunburst Summer Squash)sliced & fried

Nancy J. Patrykus


One of my dear friends, dropped off some fresh produce.
Cukes, Zucchini,and this lovely (Sunburst)yellow Pattypan Squash.
I hope you enjoy this little fast and easy recipe.
I fried it in a skillet on top of the stove.
I am sure a you can oven fry it also.
I love horseradish sauce, you can use any dip you have a taste for.
Same way with the coating.
Maybe Panco?..Yummy!
This makes a delicious appetizer.
