Squash Nuggets

These are fun finger foods that your kids will love! Baked, not fried, and perfect for dipping too. Serves 4 as a side dish.

1 pattypan squash, peeled, seeds removed and sliced into 1/2 inch slices
2 cups flour
2 cups panko breadcrumbs (if you don't have panko you can use regular breadcrumbs- they just won't be as crunchy)
2 eggs beaten with 1 tablespoon water
salt and pepper
other dry spices as you like (garlic powder, chili powder, etc.)

1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
2. Set up a breading station with the flour, breadcrumbs, and egg each in a separate bowl. Season each with salt and pepper, and other dry spices if you like (I like to put garam masala in the flour).
3. Spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray.
4. Dip a slice of squash in the egg to coat, then into the flour to coat, back into the egg to coat and finally in the breadcrumbs to coat. Set squash on baking sheet.
5. Continue with the rest of the squash slices.
6. Bake for 13 minutes and turn the pieces over so they can brown on the other side.
7. Bake for another 10 minutes or so, or until both sides are golden brown.
8. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce (my kids always like ranch).

Yeah, you were right about the fact that kids are going to love this dish. I did prepare this and my child was so in love with the dish that he was asking for more and more. Since it was one healthy dish, I was happy to prepare more.
