My First Yellow Crookneck Squash Fried

My First Yellow Crookneck Squash Fried created by Lavender Lynn

Well the name says it all. I decided to plant yellow squash this year and they are coming in so I figured let's do something with them along with the other stuff coming out of the garden. * any additional toppings can be used, and timing may be different for others, this was my first yellow squash baby so I was tender. :-)

    What the recipe didn't make crystal clear is that after mixing the egg and milk (that is used for dipping the squash slices) and tossing the wet slices into the dry mixture (the shaking in the bag part), then you fry up the slices in the butter and oil. My grandmother did something similar with dipping in egg, coating with cracker crumbs and frying in oil.

    Delicious recipe... if I made it right. The instructions aren't the best. When and how are the wet and dry stuff supposed to come together? In the pan or do you mix them before the pan?

    This should probably be thought of as a fritatta: it fries up into one big frying-pan sized veggie cake. The squash came out al dente and the cornmeal added a bit of a crunch, and you'll like this better than we did if you appreciate those textures more. It's very good, though, interesting and tasty, and made a great midafternoon snack when the family realized supper was several hours off. We had never heard of cooking with onion scapes (flower tops) but now I want to -- this time we had to substitute green onions. Made for Zaar World Tour 5.
