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


  • 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.
