Fried Squash

Fried Squash Amanda Style

You will need:
Yellow Squash, peeled and sliced medium thick.
1/2 cup corn meal
1/2 cup all purpose flour
salt and pepper (to your liking)
1/2 cup milk
1 egg, beaten
canola (or your favorite kind) oil
Heat the oil in a cast iron skillet on high heat.
Mix the milk and egg in a bowl.
In a separate bowl, mix flour, corn meal, salt, and pepper.
Dunk the squash into the milk mix and then into the flour mix. You want a good coating on the squash so don't try to do it all at once!
Place several (maybe 7)  pieces of squash in the hot oil in a single layer. Let it cook for 2 or so and then flip and cook the other side for 2 minutes. If you have ever fried eggplant, then it is the same principle idea.
Pull from the oil and drain on a paper towel.
This is so simple but soooo good, especially when you use fresh squash from the garden. It isn't really healthy (it is fried after all!) but it is a nice treat now and again.



  1. Sounds delicious! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Have you ever done what I call squash fritters, with chopped onion, squash, egg and flour, fried in oil? My kids love those, but I like them in cornmeal like yours - probably because that's how mama did it. LOL
