Total Time 30 minutes
- 1 cup yellow summer squash
- 1 egg well beaten
- 1/4 tsp. black pepper
- 1 medium onion chopped
- 1/2 cup self-rising flour to reduce sodium, use plain flour
- 1/2 cup canola oil
Wash squash and cut into pieces.
Cook in 2 cups water until tender. Drain well and mash.
Chop onion. Add chopped onion, well beaten egg, black pepper, and flour to mashed yellow squash. Mix well.
Heat canola oil in a skillet on medium heat.
Use a teaspoon to drop small amounts of the squash mixture into the hot oil.
Brown on one side; then turn with a spatula and brown the other side.
When browned remove from the skillet and drain on paper towel.
Southern-style variation: use 1/4 cup plain
cornmeal and 1/4 cup plain flour instead of
using flour only.
