Fritter Chicks love fried squash! We don't like to get hot in the kitchen in the summer but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do! These are great with hot sauce or ranch dressing too!
Southern Fried Summertime Squash
2-3 medium to large yellow squash, rinsed and patted dry
1 ½ cups plain yellow cornmeal
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
Freshly ground pepper
1 cup milk
1/4 – 1/2 cup Canola oil
Directions: Slice the squash 1/8” to 1/4” in diameter , set aside . Heat oil in a large heavy bottomed cast iron skillet, until very hot but not smoking. While oil is heating, in a large bowl mix cornmeal with flour, salt and pepper and set aside. Pour milk into a separate large bowl. When oil is ready for frying, place a handful of squash in the milk to coat it. Once the squash has been coated, transfer it to the cornmeal/flour mixture and flip it to coat. Just coat it lightly, not too heavy. Place your squash in the hot oil in small batches and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side until golden brown. Place the fried squash on a plate lined with paper towels to soak up the excess oil. Serve immediately.
