  • 2 cups of white cornmeal mix
  • 3 T self rising flour
  • ¼ c . finely minced onion
  • 1 medium zucchini or summer squash diced
  • ½ c . shredded cheddar cheese


  • In a deep fryer or heavy skillet heat 3 inches of oil to 350 degrees over medium heat.
  • Meanwhile in a large bowl beat together the egg and milk, set aside. In a medium bowl, stir together the cornmeal mix, flour, zucchini, cheese, and onion. Add the flour mix to the egg mixture and stir until well combined. Let it sit for a few minutes before frying.
