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
- 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.
