Crookneck Yellow Squash – Fresh from the garden.
Oil, for frying
7 fresh squash, sliced
Approx. 1 cup of cornmeal
1 onion, diced
Salt & Pepper, to taste
Few shakes of onion powder
I always fry squash in an electric skillet. Preheat skillet to 350 degrees add oil, just enough to lightly cover the bottom. Combine squash, cornmeal and onions in a zip-lock bag and shake. Carefully put squash/onion mixture into skillet. Cover with lid. Turn squash when browned – at this point you may need to add more oil. (just a little, as needed) While cooking; you will also need to tilt your lid to let the steam escape.
Right before squash is done sprinkle with salt, pepper and onion powder.
