Fried Squash

This Fried Squash is my new favorite side dish. Although it may not look good, it is so very yummy!!! I could eat this for lunch and it would be a meal all in itself. It is so fast and easy to make so it’s great for those busy week nights. I got this recipe from my good friend Sherman. He made it as a side when we were at their house for dinner and I could not get enough! I had to get his recipe. Sherman is a really good cook and used to be a Chef. So you can trust his recipe. The only problem with him having been a Chef, is that he doesn’t measure ingredients, so I had some guess work to do. But it came out tasting just like his. This Fried Squash is delicious and nutritious. Even my 2 year old loved it. The Squash is tender and so juicy and the spices used just make it amazing! So when you are tired of veggies or salad, and you are looking for a new side dish, definitely try this Fried Squash and I think you will love it just as much as we do. 🙂

Fried Squash {Serves 3}

Ingredients:

  • 2 Large Yellow Squash (Trader Joe’s Squash is the BEST!)
  • 1 teaspoon Lawry’s Seasoned Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon Onion Powder
  • 2 Tablespoons Oil, I used Vegetable Oil (For Frying)

Directions:

1) Wash the squash. Cut off the ends of the squash and then cut it. I cut it in half and then chop it into even sized pieces. *Kinda like you would chop cucumbers for a salad.*

2) Put the chopped squash into a large bowl. Season the squash in the bowl with all the seasonings and mix it very well.

3) Heat 2 Tablespoons of oil on medium heat (I did a 5.5) in a large frying pan. When it has heated up, add the squash into the pan.

4) Cook until the squash is cooked through, constantly mixing the squash so that it cooks evenly on all sides and does not burn. Towards the end I sprinkled some more of Lawry’s Seasoned Salt. It will be cooked through when the squash gets soft.
