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!
I have never done the soaking in buttermilk step and that really does improve the texture of these "chips." I will make them this way from now on, but probably use only flour as per my preference.
Tried this with Zucchini instead of yellow squash, and it came out wonderfully!
I wish I could give this 10 stars! I used both yellow squash & zucchini, no flour, just white stone-ground cornmeal, salt, pepper, and 1/2 tsp. sugar. Used Southerngals' suggestion with milk & lemon juice for soaking. Fried in cast iron skillet... Pure Heaven!! I can't wait to do this with green tomatos. Thank you for a definite keeper!!
Not sure if we will make again my husband wasn't a fan. As it cooked I was nervous but I did like it, the flavor was like eating a potato chip. my 1.5 year old ate several!!! We were shocked usually new food he ignores or we try to hand feed him at least one bite. So I may make again for him.
We really did like this recipe. It was so nice and crunchy. Thanks for sharing.
So very good. Equally as good for breakfast! Yes breakfast. Ummmm, cold squash with crispy bacon and white gravy- ahh to die for.
It was GREAT, It was everyone's favorite dish at the table. I made a few minor changes. I used a deep fryer instead of skillet frying. I also put the multiple batches into the toaster oven to keep them all warm, while the rest of the squash was cooking. Thanks for the recipe!
