Fry it~



There is still more squash! But the good news is that I am getting to the end.
I have used some of our Onion Ring Batter to fry some yellow squash. These are tasty little treats! I fried them in just a little olive oil. That is heart healthy... no reason to feel so guilty.
Another quick 'fried' recipe is for squash croquettes. I only used a hot skillet, not a bath of grease. These are perfect with a pork chop... now that is some good eatin'!


Squash Croquettes
3 cups cooked yellow squash
1/2 cup diced ham
2 Tbs fresh basil
1 cup ground ritz crackers
1/4 cup flour
2 eggs
salt & pepper

Place cooled squash and ham in a bowl, combine with crackers and flour. Beat eggs, then fold into squash mixture. Form into 3 inch patties. Fry until golden.


Y'all enjoy!
Sandi

I wish you hadn't posted pictures of that squash. Looks way too good. Wonder if I can pay someone to cook that for me? (Lord knows, my cooking skills aren't up to the task.)
