Summer at it's best!!

Another post already?? I know, I know but sometimes something is too good to wait and especially when it is food related! While attempting to get caught up on my blog reading, I stopped over at Cathy's Cobblestone Farms. I always enjoy her blog and her pictures. Today I found a recipe for squash patties. Have you ever had a potato pancake or potato latke? Well her recipe uses summer squash instead. I hadn't decided on a side dish for our dinner yet, and I had the squash and the rest of the ingredients on hand so I decided to make them.

OH BOY! This is a keeper for sure! The only change I made in her recipe was to use corn flour instead of corn meal because I was out of corn meal and I always have corn flour in the freezer - I use it to thicken chili and stews. Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly and it was quick and easy. Here is Cathy's recipe:

2c. grated yellow squash
1/4 c. self-rising flour
1/3 c. self-rising corn meal ( I used corn flour or masa flour)
1 small onion, chopped
1 egg, beaten
Salt and Pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients together. Spoon out into hot greased frying pan I used olive oil. Brown on both sides and drain.

David and I both thought they were out of this world and I will making them again. We had them as a side dish tonight, but next the next time I plan to have turkey breakfast sausage links on the side, and these will be the main course - they are that good.

So later this summer when you have too much squash, keep this recipe in mind! Enjoy!

Until next time, hugs, Linda
