Bite size pieces of summer squash in a light batter, the perfect taste of summer!
  • 4 cups finely diced summer squash
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons butter - optional
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1 cup panko or bread crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning or your favorite spice
  • pepper
  • oil for frying
  1. Dice up the summer squash and onion into small pieces. Add to a mixing bowl.
  2. Beat up the eggs. Melt the butter in a small dish if using. Add everything remaining except the oil to the bowl. Stir to combine. Let set for 5 minutes.
  3. Heat some oil in your frying pan.
  4. Using a 1/3 cup measuring cup, spoon the mixture into the cup. Press down on it slightly with a spoon. Put the mixture into the oil and flatten it out slightly with the back of the measuring cup. Fry on both sides until lightly brown. Remove from pan to some paper towels to drain off excess oil. Repeat until you have fried all of the croquettes.
