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!
Mama S’s Squash Patties
4-6 grated yellow squash
3/4 cup finely chopped onion
1/2 tsp salt (or more to taste)
1/4 tsp pepper (or more to taste)
6 T flour
1 egg, beaten
Combine all in bowl. Heat cooking oil in frying pan then add squash mixture by the spoonful to oil, flattening out mixture to form patty. Fry until golden brown. Place on paper towels to soak up extra grease then sprinkle with additional salt to taste.
