Fried Yellow Squash
This fried yellow squash is a delicious way to use up the summer vegetable.
- 2-3 yellow squash
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup corn meal
- 1 teaspoon seasoned salt
- 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1 cup vegetable oil
- 1 teaspoon salt OPTIONAL for drying out squash
Clean and dry squash. Cut off ends and slice into 1/4-inch thick slices.
***This step is optional but helps to keep squash crispy. After slicing, place rounds on a paper towel or colander. Sprinkle salt over the rounds to help draw out any extra moisture. Let sit for 15-30 minutes. Rinse of salt and pat dry.
In a bowl, whisk together milk and egg. In a large bowl or plate, whisk together flour, cornmeal, seasoned salt, and pepper.
Pour vegetable oil in large, deep skillet and warm over medium heat. (About 350 degrees.)
Place coated squash slices in the hot oil. Fry for about 3-4 minutes on each side or until turns golden brown.
Carefully remove squash from oil and and place on a paper towel lined plate and pat off any excess grease.
