Country Fried Butternut Squash

Country Fried Butternut Squash created by MARIA MAC

This is a truly delicious butternut squash recipe! I saute it on a large griddle in just a small amount of oil, and it turns out perfectly. I found this on Allrecipes by Maryanne. Her grandmother won a blue ribbon with this recipe and I can see why!

    Loved it. I added cinnamon, curry, cardamon, cumin, and tumuric. I used the cornmeal, and coconut flour, and didn't us the milk or wheat flour. Due to allergies. It worked well. This is a great. Even the babysitter thought it was good. :)

    Delicious! Crisp fried squash outside, tender and sweet inside. I think a little parmesan cheese, or even some 'pumpkin' spices in the flour would make it a little more interesting next time.

    I tried evelyn/athen's suggestion of adding pumpkin pie spices to the milk mixture. I think it would be more effective added to the flour mixture. I didn't care for this at all but Dh liked it. It took a lot longer than 3 minutes per side to cook the center until tender.
