DIRECTIONS

  • Before shredding, cut out the stem of the squash, but there's no need to peel it. Remove any large seeds, especially if using a large squash.
  • Preheat about 1/2 inch oil (I prefer olive oil) over medium-high heat in a deep skillet.
  • Place the squash and onions into a large bowl.
  • Beat the eggs, milk and oil into the squash/onion mixture. Then add the flour, baking powder, salt and pepper and mix all until combined.
  • Scoop batter using a 1/4 cup measure and drop batter into hot oil. Do not crowd.
  • Cook until brown, turn with a spatula and cook the other side until brown.
  • Drain on paper toweling.
  • Add oil to pan when necessary.
  • Keep warm until served.
  • Serve with horseradish sauce, ketchup or whatever you like. They are great as is!
