This deep fried summer squash is easy and tastes great. The squash is dipped in egg, then flour, then it is deep fried to a golden brown. Season with salt and pepper, or use a seasoned salt or Creole seasoning blend.


  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 7 medium summer squash, thinly sliced (about 1/4-inch)
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • oil
  • salt and pepper, to taste, or a seasoned salt or Creole blend


Combine eggs, milk, and salt. Dip squash in the egg batter, then roll in flour until well coated.

Fry in deep hot fat, about 360°, until golden brown.

Drain on paper towels.

Season with salt and pepper or a Creole or seasoned salt blend.
