This is a recipe I got from a cousin. I love squash in the summertime, but do not care for it frozen. This is a great way to use (and freeze) some of the bounty from your garden!

How to Make Squash Puppies

Step-by-Step

  1. Grate squash and onion. Place in colander and sprinkle with salt. Let sit for about 30 minutes to get rid of excess moisture. Pat dry with paper towels.
  2. Mix squash and onion with flour, cornmeal, cheese, egg, and black pepper to taste.
  3. Heat oil and drop mixture by tablespoonfuls into hot oil. Cook until golden brown and drain on paper towels.
  4. Serve hot as an appetizer with dipping sauce of your choice (I use a cajun aoli), or serve as a side dish.
  5. This makes a bunch, and they freeze well. I freeze them individually on a cookie sheet, then transfer to a plastic bag.
