I had a craving for fried squash and I was happy to come across this recipe. Frying squash is a popular way to prepare squash in the South albeit not the healthiest way! To make it a little bit healthier without losing the flavor I sprayed the pan with Pam and then added about a tablespoon of olive oil. This way you don't have to drain anything. Rather than being deep fried it's more sauteed. I made a few other adjustments. I added a sprinkling of garlic powder and Emeril's seasoning. (any seasoned salt will do.) This gave it more flavor. If make this again I will dip the squash slices in the flour mixture to get a more even coating. It got clumpy when I mixed it all together. Read More

Not bad but I think I would prefer it baked instead. Next time I'll substitute bread crumbs or cracker crumbs for the flour as well. I thought the onions were a nice touch though. The kids didn't like it. Read More

I omitted the onion because I was pressed for time and instead of salad dressing I used buttermilk and the results were wonderful! I also added a little finely shredded Colby/Jack cheese to the Parmesan at the end and that was even better. I'm eating the leftovers for lunch today! Read More

Very good recipe! Even my kids liked it. Only four starts because I too would like a less clumpy coating. I will dip them in flour next time rather than mix it in. Read More

Not bad but it needs seasoning. I found the flour mixture to be bland. Read More

Delicious!! I also followed reviewers suggestions of dipping in flour seperatly rather than mixing it in I added a little onion powder and garlic powder plus some good ole salt and pepper to the flour mixture. I also sprinkled parmesan cheese on top everytime I removed some from the pan. Came out delicious. Read More
