This year, we’re not able to grow our vegetables. However, we do still have weekly SquashSquash. My husband has always looked for his delicious fried SquashSquash during the summer.
My kids also love it, and it’s delicious with grilled meats and enjoyed the cool summer breeze in the backyard.
It’s also an easy recipe that can be modified using different vegetables, like tomatoes, zucchini or even zucchini. It’s a great idea to use the same method using green tomatoes. Are you a fan of fried green tomatoes? Yes, I believe so!

Cut: Dry and clean the SquashSquash. Cut the ends off and cut into 1/4-inch slices.

- Wash off the salt, then rub dry.
Make the egg mixture: Mix eggs and milk in the bowl. Mix cornmeal, flour, and seasoning salt in a large bowl dish.
Heat the vegetable oil by pouring it into an enormous, deep skillet, and then warm it on medium-low heat. (About 350 degrees.)
Coat: Dip the squash slice in the egg mixture, followed by the flour mixture. Be sure to coat it thoroughly.
Fry: Dip the pieces of SquashSquash into the hot oil. Fry for approximately 3-4 mins per side or until they become golden brown.
Serve: Remove the oil, then place it on a towel to remove grease. Then, place it on a wire rack until you are ready to enjoy.
