Something differentPosted Friday, September 25, 2009, at 8:28 AM
Fried Squash Puffs
1 quart oil for frying
4 summer squash, cut into chunks
1 medium onion, grated
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
2/3 cup dry corn muffin mix or cornmeal
2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
Place the squash in a pot with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, and cook 10 minutes or until tender. Drain and mash. In a bowl, mix 2 cups mashed squash, onion and eggs. In a separate bowl, mix the flour, corn muffin mix or cornmeal, baking powder and salt. Thoroughly blend the squash mixture into the flour mixture. Drop it by rounded tablespoons into the hot oil of 360 degrees and fry until evenly browned by flipping over until golden brown and crisp. Drain on paper towels.
These are also wonderful with fish instead of or combined with fish, give it a try. Add ranch or blue cheese dip for an even tastier treat.

I began cooking at the age of 9 with my father and have always loved trying new recipes. Beware: I am fond of onions and peppers! I am diabetic so I do try to cook more healthy dishes these days. My door is always open to trying and sharing new recipes. Let's see what we can cook up with this blog!
