This is my favorite way to fix squash. When dad had a garden, I'd grab 2 squash every morning, fresh, and fix this for breakfast. I've been known to grab 4 and fix it for me for dinner, with nothing else.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix the flour, salt and pepper on a plate. Cut the ends from the squash and cut into 1/2" slices (don't remove the skin). Dip pieces into egg. Then dip into flour mixture (make sure it's coated well). Fry squash in frying pan, in oil, for about 15 minute a side, until crispy brown. Place on paper towels to drain well.
  2. I usually salt them while draining. It's important to let them sit on the towels a bit, because there suckers soak up the oil.
  3. I serve them with ketchup and for me, they are better than fries.

This is how my mom always made her fried squash, and this is how I make mine as well. Simple, easy and yummy. Thank you for sharing.

I also added a bit of garlic powder. I also sliced a little thinner, trying to get them a little more crisp. Brings back memories of grandma's house when I was a little girl.
