Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place grated squash in a colander and squeeze out all excess water; you should have about 1 cup grated squash. Transfer squash to a bowl. Add onion, flour, egg, baking powder, and salt and stir batter together.

  • Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Drop batter into the hot pan and use the back of a large spoon to flatten fritters to 3 to 4 inches in diameter and to 1/4- to 1/8-inch thickness. Cook until edges are deep brown, about 1 minute. Flip over and cook 30 seconds more. Transfer fritters to a plate lined with a paper towel and sprinkle lightly with salt. Repeat with remaining batter, melting more butter in the pan as needed.

  • Serve warm topped with Cheddar cheese, onion, and sour cream.

Cook's Note:

Mother put a little onion into her batter. Bacon and cheese could also be used.
