Squash Patties


The recipe for these delicious patties was given to me by my friend Ellen. She’s always been one of my favorites. Written on the recipe is the following blurb, “This is the only way I can get Russ to eat squash.” If you have somebody in your family who thinks they don’t like squash, give this recipe a try.


* 1 cup cooked, drained and mashed yellow squash
* 1 egg
* 1 tablespoon sugar
* 1 teaspoon salt
* 1/2 c. self-rising flour
* 1/4 c. sauteed chopped onions
* 1/4 c. sauteed peppers (red or green), optional
* freshly ground pepper


Combine all ingredients.

Drop by large spoonfuls into hot skillet coated with vegetable oil spray or 2 t. vegetable oil. When browned on one side, flip and cook until brown on reverse side (just like you would make regular pancakes).
