Mama S’s Squash Patties

One of the first times I went to my husband’s parents house for dinner he had asked his mom to fix him some squash patties. I didn’t know what in the world they were but I knew if it had squash in the recipe it had to be good. OH MY!  This is all things Southern! It’s yella (that’s yellow to y’all city folks) squash, onions, salt and pepper, and it’s FRIED! Oh yeah! You know we love our fried foods in the South! This is too good not to share!
