Yellow Squash Fritters

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by wannaB

What a delicious way to use abundant summer squash! Very easy to make, but it makes a really great side dish. I found this in an old Bell Telephone recipe book. My grown daughter always requests this when she visits. I have been making this for many summers. I just guessed at the number of servings. It is more than enough for 4 people.

I'm sorry; maybe I did something wrong. I heated the oil to 375 degrees. The fritters came out looking delicious. I expected the coating to be crispy, but the coating was soft somewhat like a popover would be, not at all crispy like a hush puppy. The taste itself was okay. It is a different way to cook squash.
