These summer squash patties are easy to prepare, and they can be made with yellow summer squash or zucchini. 

What You'll Need

How to Make It

  1. Heat the olive oil in a heavy skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the grated squash with the flour, cornmeal, finely chopped onion, beaten egg, and freshly ground black pepper.
  3. Spoon the squash mixture into the hot skillet, using about 2 tablespoons for each squash patty. Cook, turning halfway through, or until the patties are golden brown on both sides.  Drain on paper towels and sprinkle lightly with salt.
  1. Serve with applesauce, sour cream, Greek yogurt, or a fresh fruit salsa or tomato salsa.
  2. Sprinkle lightly with salt.
  3. Suzi's Note: I enjoy these very much! Sometimes I make them real crispy, other times I make them like potato pancakes and have applesauce with them.



  1. Add a few tablespoons of finely chopped red or green bell pepper to the squash mixture.
  2. Add chopped fresh parsley for extra color and flavor.
  3. Add about 1/4 cup of shredded cheddar cheese or a few tablespoons of grated Parmesan cheese.
  4. Mix 1/2 teaspoon of oregano or Italian seasoning blend and serve the patties with marinara or prepared spaghetti sauce.
