Summer Squash Patties

These are so good!
You have to make them.
I didn't think I would like them, but I've eaten about 10 now!
They are crisp on the outside, moist in the center and sweet and salty.
You can eat them out of hand like a cookie or add a sauce and eat them with a fork.

Mix together :
3 cups summer squash or zucchini
(I'm partial to the "Butterstick" variety)
1 cup shredded cheese
2 eggs beaten
1/2 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
pinch salt
pinch pepper

Place batter in 1/4 cup patties on a grease cookie sheet.
Bake at 375 degrees for 15 min. or until the
patties are toasty brown.



  1. Those look very yummy... I learned a new recipe this summer on BYC similar to this. But I use squash and zucchini, we ate alot of them this year and I cooked up some and froze them for winter... used 1 bag last night for dinner, I like putting some ranch dressing and a tomato slice on mine :)Next summer I'm going to stock up on ALOT more for winter!

  2. What is the recipe like from BYC?

    Before I made these I was thinking - What am I going to do with all these summer squash?!?
    Now I'm standing next to the plant, toe tapping, waiting for it to grow a few more!

  3. Its 2 cups of zucchini/squash
    1/2 cup chopped onion
    1/2 cup flour
    2 eggs
    handful of shredded cheese, whatever you have
    1/2 cup Parmesan (sometimes I dont add this)
    salt, pepper and I like to put basil in ours
    (or you can use old bay and it will taste like a crab cake)
    oil to cook with

    Mix everything in a bowl (not the oil). Put oil in a skillet and heat... then add spoon full of mixture and fry on both sides

    These are very good, plus you can freeze them, then warm them back up in oven :) I ate 5 leftovers today!

  4. My wife's Grandmother told me about these a few years ago, and we love them. We usually add onions and peppers diced, and some 'Montreal Steak Seasoning'....great with honey mustard!
