A Blast from My Past

Southern Fried Yellow Squash

This recipe takes me back to Granny Bowers's kitchen. These golden gems are the perfect side dish. You just know these taste great because they are fried!

Yellow squash, sliced to 1/4 inch thickness
Flour, one to two cups depending on how many you are going to fry
1 egg
Salt, 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon
Pepper, 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon
Vegetable oil

Pour vegetable oil in skillet and heat over medium high heat.  You will need enough oil to cover the squash slices. Beat egg with fork.  Take slices of squash and place them in the egg wash.  Drop them into a Ziploc bag containing flour, salt, and pepper. Shake bag, then place in hot oil to cook.  Brown until squash has a light brown color.
