We had a ton of male blossoms and I've been wanting to try fried squash blossoms forever so I plucked a bunch and found this recipe. WOW.....They are sooooooo delicious. My hubby didn't think he would like these but he loved them, too. This is definitely going to be one of our go to recipes when we have bunches of male blossoms. Thanks for sharing!!
This was great! I had never cooked (or eaten that I know of) squash blossoms. I put little pieces of cheese inside (Cougar Gold that I had on hand...from Washington State). Me and the hubby loved them. Cooking again tonight with some cheese a friend brought by.
Thanks Barb I have always wanted to try the fried squash blossoms but this is the first year I have had the plants. I really wasn't sure what to expect but they were great. I think I would make the batter a little thicker next time but the flavor deserves 5 stars. Bonnie
