Country Fried Butternut Squash

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Geema

This is a truly delicious butternut squash recipe! I saute it on a large griddle in just a small amount of oil, and it turns out perfectly. I found this on Allrecipes by Maryanne. Her grandmother won a blue ribbon with this recipe and I can see why!

Loved it. I added cinnamon, curry, cardamon, cumin, and tumuric. I used the cornmeal, and coconut flour, and didn't us the milk or wheat flour. Due to allergies. It worked well. This is a great. Even the babysitter thought it was good. :)
