I had a craving for fried squash and I was happy to come across this recipe. Frying squash is a popular way to prepare squash in the South, albeit not the healthiest way! To make it a little bit healthier without losing the flavor, I sprayed the pan with Pam and then added about a tablespoon of olive oil. This way, you don't have to drain anything. Rather than being deep fried it's more sauteed. I made a few other adjustments. I added a sprinkling of garlic powder and Emeril's seasoning. (any seasoned salt will do.) This gave it more flavor. If make this again I will dip the squash slices in the flour mixture to get a more even coating. It got clumpy when I mixed it all together.


i liked the way the miracle whip sticks to the squash. i followed the directions but used salted cornmeal instead of flour. my husband loved them because the salt gave it the flavor it needed.


Very good recipe! Even my kids liked it. Only four starts because I, too, would like a less clumpy coating. I will dip them in flour next time rather than mix it in.
