If you like hush puppies, you gotta try these squash puppies. I think a person who doesn't like squash will love these.

This is the recipe to pull out when your garden is over run with zucchini and squash and your family is begging, "No more squash!" It has a nice little kick with the red pepper (I added a 1/2 tsp.) I added the left overs to my spaghetti sauce and served over pasta. Delicious.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine the first 5 ingredients in large bowl. Stir together the squash and next 3 ingredients; add to the cornmeal mixture. Stir until blended.
  2. Pour oil to the depth of 1/2 inch deep into a cast iron skillet (or any heavy skillet). Heat to 350°F drop batter by rounded tablespoons full in batches. Fry 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown drain on paper towels.
  3. Sprinkle evenly with the 1/2 tsp of salt.
