    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Soak squash in buttermilk to cover, at least 5 minutes.
    2. 2
      Mix dry ingredients together.
    3. 3
      Dredge marinated squash in cornmeal mixture (I use a Ziploc baggie & shake until covered).
    4. 4
      Fry in vegetable oil until golden, turn and fry until lightly golden on other side.
    5. 5
      Salt lightly, remove from oil, & drain on paper towels.
    6. 6
      This is delicious - also works for fried green tomatoes (cut green tomatoes at least 1/4" slices).
    7. 7
      If you like fried okra - batter should be 1 cup milk + 1 egg.
    8. 8
      Dredge in same mixture as above & salt as you do for squash & drain on paper towels.

      This is a good one to get picky eaters to eat. From my husband down to my 3 kids (ages 13, 12,and 5) they all love it. The only difference that I do to this recipe is I use whole milk sometimes. It works just as great and works in a pinch if you don't have buttermilk on hand. Even though I believe the buttermilk method is better myself. My grandma and mom made it that way and it reminds me of them and home everytime I make it.

      I used Greek yogurt to soak them in and it was amazing! Also used Jiffy corm bread mix instead of cornmeal, Melted in your mouth.

      I didn't have any buttermilk so I used one cup of milk 1 T. cider vinegar, which gave this a really nice flavor. I also fried up some sliced green tomatoes and some overgrown green beans using this method. We loved it! I loved that I didn't need a big pot of oil to fry these....I used just about 1/2 to 3/4 inch in my medium frying pan. Thanks!
