Ingredients

  • ¾ cup self-rising cornbread mix (such as Martha White®)

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 2 yellow squash, cut into 1/8-inch slices

  • ¼ cup olive oil, or more as needed

Directions

  1. Place cornbread mix in a gallon-size resealable bag; season with salt and black pepper. Add squash, seal bag, and shake to coat evenly. Remove squash from bag and shake off any excess cornmeal.

  2. Heat about 1/4 inch of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Fry squash in the hot oil, working in batches, until center is cooked and edges are crisp, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on a paper towel-lined plate.

Editor's Note:

We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used. Amount of the breading mix consumed will vary.
