Recipe: Summer Squash Fritters

Makes about 24 fritters – serves 2 as a main dish or 4 as a side dish


2 cups grated summer squash (3 little squash or 2 big ones)
1/2 cup minced or grated onion (about 1/2 an onion)
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/2 cup fine bread crumbs
1 egg plus 1 egg white
6 Tbsp. flour
1/2 cup half and half

2-4 Tbsp. olive oil


Wash and grate summer squash. Mince onion. Mix all the ingredients except the oil. Heat half of the oil in a big frying pan over medium heat. When oil is hot, drop in fritter batter by the teaspoonful, flattening mounds slightly. Cook over medium heat until golden brown (about 4 minutes). Turn and cook other side until brown, 2-3 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter, adding more oil to the pan if needed.
