Blue Ribbon Recipe

This cooking method of these squash croquettes brings out the natural sweetness of the squash. They aren't weighed down with a ton of oil. Outside has a crispy crunch while the inside stays soft and tender. Serve these alongside grilled chicken or steak for an easy summer side dish.
