Southern Fried Squash

It’s that time of year when gardens are overflowing with squash. One of my favorite recipes this time of year is fried squash. I could eat this and fried green tomatoes every night!

Southern Fried Squash

Southern Fried Squash


  • 2-3 medium squash (yellow, zucchini, or a mixture), sliced thinly
  • 2-3 T. butter or margarine (optional)
  • 1/2 – 1 c. oil
  • 1 c. flour
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten (optional)
  • 1/4 c. milk (optional)
  • seasoned salt, to taste
  • pepper, to taste


Line a plate with paper towels.

Heat the oil and butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat.

Whisk the egg and milk together, if using. If not using then put a small amount of water in a bowl.

Mix the flour and seasonings in a separate bowl.

Dip each squash round in the milk/egg mixture or the water.

Then dip in the flour to coat.

Drop the pieces in the hot oil, a few at a time, and fry until crispy brown. Flip to brown both sides.

Drain the squash on paper towels and enjoy.
