“Here's a fast and simple way to use up your summer squash (also called crooked neck squash). I have also used this recipe for okra and zucchini. My kids gobble up their veggies this way!” - by maddiematters
Original recipe yields 4 servings
- Place cornbread mix in a gallon-size resealable bag; season with salt and black pepper. Add squash, seal bag, and shake to coat evenly. Remove squash from bag and shake off any excess cornmeal.
- Heat about 1/4 inch of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Fry squash in the hot oil, working in batches, until center is cooked and edges are crisp, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on a paper towel-lined plate.

In addition, make sure to use a smaller yellow squash. On the larger, or over grown ones, the skin is naturally tougher and with larger seeds. The ones I made with the overall smaller yellow squash were the ones that turned out well."
