The original recipe was quite bland for my taste so, on the second batch, I added approx. 1/2 tsp of salt, garlic powder, onion powder and black pepper to the batter. I shallow fried and flipped halfway through cooking. We dipped in ketchup, and everyone in the family gobbled it up! The next day, we made it again with both squash and potatoes. With the minor adjustments to the seasoning, this is a definite keeper!
I used yellow squash for this recipe and it was so easy and delicious.
Minor recommendations: Instead of using an egg and milk just use the egg. Also, eliminate the spices in the recipe and just use Italian bread crumbs.
In summary, slice the squash, dip in egg, shake in Italian bread crumbs and fry...UM..UM...GOOD!!
You have got to try this recipe!Oh my gosh!!! This is delicious! I can not stop eating the green tomatoes I fried up using this dredge. The squash was ok it would have been better a LOT better had I cut them thin instead of thick. The fried green tomatoes were out of this world. I did change the recipe up a bit by using (I am a season person the more the better!)salt pepper garlic powder parsley and season all in both the egg wash and the flour/corn meal mixture. I put it in a zip lock bag which makes the clean up easy.
When I made this recipe I used yellow squash instead and i was a big hit. My boyfriend's mother was so impressed that she upgraded her fried squash recipe to include eggs milk and flour. It makes the squash crunchy outside and soft inside. My mom roommate dad little brother everyone I know loves this recipe. We've even made it with green tomatoes and zucchini. Being from the south we love things fried and this recipe is definately a keeper.
Great recipe for frying up all those summer squash! My children who hate veggies ate this willingly! I decreased the milk to 1/4 cup and added some Frank's Red Hot Sauce to the egg/milk mixture for a little kick! I have also made a batch using half a packet of Ranch mix in the flour for a little extra zing!
Love it! Just finished eating our first batch...so simple so good. Our seasonings: 1 tsp salt 1 tsp garlic powder 1/2 tsp black peppper. We mixed this in with the flour then dumped in a paper bag. Shook the squash slices in this 1st then dipped in egg/milk mixture then dredged lightly in cornmeal. Fried in 1/2" oil as directed. Super crispy and the squash was melt-in-your-mouth!
Ohhh so good! I have tried to fry squash before but it never turned out right. I found this recipe and fell in love! Very yummy. I did dip them into Italian stye breadcrumbs and flour instead of the cornmeal and they turned out perfect. This is a keeper.
These were really disappointing for me. My grandmother had an amazing recipe for "fried" squash that she baked in the oven using summer squash/zucchini and cracker meal. I expected this to taste different and tried not to compare the two but I just really didn't think these were very good. The corn meal breading wasn't great and they were quite bland. The squash on the inside was nice but there are so many great recipes for butternut squash that are far less trouble and tastier than this one. I'm glad I tried this but I won't be making it again.
