My friend added the following note to this recipe when she gave it to me. “This is the only way I can get my husband to eat squash.” If you are enjoying an abundance of squash at your house, add this recipe to your collection.
If you have somebody in your family who thinks they don’t like squash, be sure you try these yellow Squash Patties or fritters, as I sometimes call them. Serve this side dish with ranch dressing, catsup, or something like this Cajun Dip.
The original recipe I received from my friend called for self-rising flour. But, unfortunately, I couldn’t find a single bag of the stuff at the big Walmart near our house today. (Maybe Covid-related)
2 c. shredded yellow squash
1 small onion, diced finely
1/4 c. self rising flour
1/3 c. self rising cornmeal
1 egg, beaten
Pepper, to taste
Mix all ingredients. Drop by spoonfuls into hot oil.
Brown on both sides. Salt lightly . Makes about 10 patties….2 patties per serving.
