Breaded Fried Squash Recipe
Recipe type: Side
  • 1 small yellow squash, sliced
  • 1 small green squash, sliced
  • 1 ½-2 cups vegetable oil (or enough to fill a small pan about 1 inch deep)
  • ½ cup liquid egg substitute (or 2-3 beaten eggs mixed with a little milk)
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs, plain
  • Seasonings of choice (I used garlic, salt & pepper)
  1. Preheat vegetable oil on high for a few minutes to get it nice and hot.
  2. Liberally season panko bread crumbs in a shallow dish with desired seasonings.
  3. Individually dip squash slices into egg then into bread crumbs to coat.
  4. Reduce heat on oil to around medium, place breaded squash slices into oil as you coat and fry for 3-5 minutes on each side or until golden brown and crisp.
  5. Remove with slotted spoon onto paper towels to drain.
  6. Serve & enjoy.

  1. I wouldn’t have thought of using panko as breading. I’ll have to try that. Thanks for sharing.
