Southern Fried Squash

I remember my Grandma Cora cooking fried squash and sweet potatoes on her wood burning stove.  Wow, her food was delicious, but that kitchen was hot as heck on the hot summer days.

If you happen to cut more than you need to fry just coat and then add to a bowl some White Lily White Self Rising Corn Meal Mix and shake to cover squash.  Refrigerate and fry within the next day for best taste.  That coating really give a light crispy coating.

You can fry green tomatoes and okra as well in this mixture.

I hope you enjoy this simple southern recipe.  You can save and print for your personal use only, copyright protected.
