Squash Croquettes


Squash croquettes are deep fried, made with mashed summer squash, green onions, eggs, bread crumbs, and seasonings. Scroll down to see more summer squash recipes.


  • 3 cups yellow squash, cooked & drained well -- mashed
  • 3 green onions, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon basil
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup coarse bread crumbs
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • vegetable oil for deep frying


In a large bowl, combine mashed squash, onion, thyme, basil, eggs, bread crumbs, salt and pepper. The mixture should be quite thick; add more bread crumbs if it isn't thick enough to form balls easily.

Heat oil until a small amount of batter floats to the top quickly, to about 370°. Form into balls about 1 1/2 to 2 inches in diameter. Fry 3 or 4 balls at a time, taking care not to crowd the pan too much. Cook until golden, about 4 to 6 minutes; drain on paper towels and keep warm in a warming drawer or 150° to 200° oven.
Serves 4.
