How to Make Fried Squash

| Step-by-Step Guide

Prep the Squash - Rinse and dry, then slice into even ¼ inch circles.

Combine buttermilk, egg, and hot sauce in a bowl. Mix well and set aside.

Whisk the Buttermilk Mixture

Mix flour, cornmeal, Italian seasoning, Creole/Cajun Seasoning, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper in another bowl.

Make the Flavorful Breading

Coat the squash circles in the buttermilk mixture, then in the cornmeal mixture. Ensure they are fully coated.

Dredge and Coat the Squash

Heat oil in a skillet, then fry the squash until golden brown and crisp, about 3-4 minutes per side.

Fry to Perfection

Place the fried squash on a paper towel-lined plate to drain off excess oil.
