everyone will love these as an alternative to the someimes dry hush-puppies. If you'd like to have a little more zing to your squash puffs - substitute fish fry instead of the cornmeal...this gives it a little more seasoning with some spice to it.

yummy! A good way to hide veggies from kids since they look and taste like hushpuppies! We loved them

These are delicious! I made them as written but plan on try some of the suggestions of the other reviewers, especially adding southwestern flavors and sweet corn to the batter. This was an excellent recipe to help me use up the bumper crop of yellow squash coming out of my garden. Thanks Riffraff :)
***8/26/11****Adding stars and also want to comment that these reheat really well, SO, since we're getting so sick and tired of squash (been eating it for 3 weeks now), I'm going to make a huge batch of these and freeze them to eat during the winter, I'm sure we'll love squash again in January!!
