Squash Puppies

Susan Reeves


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!

Pan Fry


8 medium
yellow squash (or zucchini)
1 medium
1 Tbsp
1 c
all purpose flour
1/2 c
1 c
grated sharp cheddar cheese
egg - lightly beaten
black pepper
oil for frying


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