If you’re like me and planted a few squash seeds at the beginning of Spring then in a couple more weeks you’ll have so much squash you wont know what to do with it. I recently experimented with a recipe from our local CSA and changed it a little bit to suit my families tastes. This is a great way to use up some of that squash in your garden in a different way.
Yellow Squash Puffs [yields approximately 8 servings]
- 1 1/2 cup yellow squash, cooked and mashed
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1/3 up all-purpose flour
- 1/3 cup cornmeal
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 medium onion, grated
- vegetable oil
Combine the cooked squash and egg, stirring well. Combine flour, cornmeal, baking powder, and salt in a separate bowl, stir well. Add squash mixture and onion; stir until blended.
Drop squash mixture by tablespoonful into hot oil. Cook until golden brown, flipping once. Drain well on paper towels.
Then enjoy! This is a somewhat healthy, kid friendly, side dish that the whole family will love. And you wont end up sick of all that squash you planted.
