Yellow Squash Fritters

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Gwanny Hill

A tasty way to use up left-over stewed yellow squash. My family enjoys these so much that I usually purposely stew too much squash in order to have enough to make these fritters. I normally serve them with a baked or roasted meat, green beans and cole slaw.

These were tremendous! My husband and I loved them and we polished the plate in one sitting. The only change I made was that I did not have self rising floor and so I added a 1/4 tsp of soda and 1 tsp of baking powder to my flour. I will most certainly be making these again. It is a great way to eat a less interesting vegetable. Thanks!
