Squash Puffs | Recipe Share

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.
