A tasty addition to a light meal

  • 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
  1. Wash squash and cut into pieces.
  2. Cook in 2 cups water until tender. Drain well and mash.
  3. Chop onion. Add chopped onion, well beaten egg, black pepper, and flour to mashed yellow squash. Mix well.
  4. Heat canola oil in a skillet on medium heat.
  5. Use a teaspoon to drop small amounts of the squash mixture into the hot oil.
  6. Brown on one side; then turn with a spatula and brown the other side.
  7. 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.
