Good Enough for a Main Dish!December 07, 2010 By Carrie.Z
These were a big hit at a family dinner party (we cooked them there, so they'd be nice and crispy). Fried 'em up in bacon fat, and everybody couldn't say enough good things about them. Suzi, thank you for a wonderful recipe! And thank you again, Diana, for all your great recipes, too! Happy Holidays, Carrie :>

Yummy!July 15, 2010 By HannahDeHerrera
So simple to make...got self rising corn meal recipe off of the internet...couldn't find it in the store. We have had it for dinner, breakfast, for snacks too! I am having a party later this month and will make small bite size ones for appetizers. I'm thinking about making a dip with sour cream or yogurt, garlic and herbs to go with them. I have had such an abundance of this zephyr squash(yellow with green at the tip) so I have shredded lots of it in 2 cup portions so we can enjoy the patties for months to come. I'm sure this will work out ok...has anyone tried freezing the squash?

These patties were excellent. I have also fried them up, froze them and reheated in a skillet. Really easy and fast. I added jalapeno to this recipe also. Tried with shredded apple, little sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Wonderful.

This was a very simple recipe and the squash patties turned out really good. I like the ratio of squash to ""breading"". Will definitely be making these again and again.

Favorite Mama Used to MakeJune 23, 2008 By susieqself
My mother made these every day for dinner during the summer. Sort of like fried corn bread (true southerner's will know what I mean) with the veggies.

My Husband Loves Them!June 19, 2008 By annainsc
This is the first review I have ever written. We love this recipe! I followed the other reviewers suggestions and added a little extra seasoning. I also mixed them up a couple hours before cooking and that worked out well. I made mine a little thick, about 1/2 to 3/4 inches, and cooked them really slowly. They were so good that my husband actually commented on them. Something he rarely does. He liked them so much that he wants the left overs with his eggs in the morning. Actually that sounds like a great idea. I think I'll have some too.

Very TastyApril 04, 2008 By cckrullcc
I read the previous reviewer's comment about the lack of flavor, so I added some hot sauce and seasoning salt. It turned out very well- best recipe I have come across in a while.

Excellent patties (I made a slight change)September 03, 2007 By kellysink
These patties cooked up just about perfect. I did read the review of a previous poster who thought that they were a little bland, so I added a little chicken-style seasoning (McKays brand). They turned out delicious. Nice consistency too.

This is the greatest recipe since sliced bread!August 22, 2007 By rschaal
I've experimented with this recipe several times. You can either delay cooking until shortly before dinner, having mixed up all the ingredients earlier, or even freeze the patties and reheat them at 300 for maybe 15 minutes for an instant veggie. both approaches have been successful. This is the healthiest recipe I've ever seen for squash - notice there isn't any call for sugar? You actually wind up using almost seven times the volume of squash as the total of all the other ingredients combined! If you don't believe me - look at most other squash recipes... you will see twice the sugar content over squash.. This recipe doesn't use any sugar at all. (Does 1/2 cup of zuchini and two cups of sugar sound familiar?) In a non-stick skillet, you might be able to make the patties without any oil or fat at all. I use just a tad of olive oil... cooking slowly at almost 10 minutes per side to get cooked throughout and brown on the outside. - patty about 3/4"" thick.. Zuchini works in this recipe just as well. Final points: 1) When you mix this up, you want to 'bruise"" the veggies so you work out the moisture that's in the shreded squash. 2.) Cook fairly slow so they cook through as they brown. My first try at this recipe - I cooked on too high heat and didn't get the inside much more than warmed. I almost didn't do the recipe again. The ideal is that the patty tastes kind of like cornbread with a hefty dose of squash.
