Cheddar Fried Squash
Simple and delicious, Cheddar Fried Squash is a Southern favorite and a great side dish to use up all that squash and zucchini from the garden.
small to medium summer squash
beaten with a little water
all purpose flour
shredded cheddar cheese
salt and pepper
oil for cooking
Slice the squash into 1/4 inch thick slices.
Mix together breadcrumbs, cheese and salt and pepper together on a plate.
Place the egg and flour on separate plates.
Heat your oil ( I use bacon grease) in a skillet over medium high heat. it should be about a 1/4 inch deep.
To bread the squash dip first in egg, then flour, then egg again, then breadcrumbs.
Gently place in oil and fry until golden brown on each side, 3-4 minutes.
Drain on paper towels. Serve and enjoy!
