Aunt Dorothy's Breaded and fried petti-pan squash

I remembered this recipe from my wonderful aunt from when I was a small child, and it is just as delicious now as it was then.

Aunt Dorothy's Breaded and Fried Petti-pan Squash:

  • 1 fresh squash just picked from the garden (about 5-6 inches wide). Any bigger and the seeds will have started to form.
  • Cut off scalloped ends and try eating them raw. It's too difficult to try cooking the ends anyway.
  • Cut in length-wise strips about 1/2 inch thick
  • Dip in flour
  • Dip in eqq wash
  • Dip in Italian seasoned bread crumbs until totally covered. You may add your favorite spices to your bread crumbs.
  • Fry in thin layer of canola or olive oil until tender.
  • Flip and fry on second side until just tender. I prefer mine a little more on the crunchy side. You can always cook more if you want. Eat when hot.
