One of the best side dishes ever. Absolutely essential if you live in the south. :)
Also very simple - it takes only a few minutes and ingredients you should have on hand!
Step 1: What you'll need:
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1/2 yellow cornmeal
- 1 egg
- 1/2 C milk
- 1 yellow squash
- 1 zucchini
- salt, pepper, additional spices - Tony's!
- oil for frying - I used canola
- large skillet for frying
- paper towels for draining
Step 2: Cut up squash and zucchini!
Slice them pretty thin, no more than 1/4 inch. You want them to be able to cook quickly.
Step 3: Make the flour mixture for dredging.
I used Tony's for this particular batch, because it's good with everything. Nom.
I would suggest putting in at least 1 tsp of each salt, pepper, and whatever spice you choose. You want the dredging mixture to be very flavorful - your finished product will get almost all of its flavor from it!
To taste test, lick a finger and stick it in the flour and then taste. Taste something? Good. Taste nothing but flour? ADD MOAR!
Step 4: Mix wet ingredients, heat oil.
After this, put a skillet on the stove, add about 1/4 cup of oil, and heat over medium high heat.
Also, put a few paper towels on a large plate so you have a good resting spot for the squash and zucchini to drain once they're done cooking. :)
Step 5: Dredging!
Then, dip it in the flour mixture, and shake off the excess. You can do multiple pieces at one time once you get going. :)
You'll do this for each piece before you drop it in the oil.
