I grew up eating these and they are one of the few veggies my kids fight over!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Grate the squash in food processor( or by hand if you dont have one).
  2. Dice the onion.
  3. Then combine squash, onion, shredded cheddar, egg, salt & pepper. Stir together adding flour a few tbs. at a time. It should be creamy and thick. Lift the spoon out with some on it and it should stick together. Use as much flour as needed to get to this consistency. I usually guess, and sometimes if it is too dry I use another egg. If they are not right they will fall apart when you cook them.
  4. Pre-heat oil in nonstick skillet (I use my electric skillet) to 350 degrees.
  5. Drop by spoonfuls into skillet and fry until golden brown usually a few minutes for each side. Drain on paper towels and enjoy!
