"Here's a fast and simple way to use up your summer squash (also called crooked neck squash). I have also used this recipe for okra and zucchini. My kids gobble up their veggies this way!"

self-rising cornbread mix (such as Martha White®)
salt and ground black pepper to taste
yellow squash, cut into 1/8-inch slices
olive oil, or more as needed
Amazing. i never thought of doing this. I had some corn muffin mix left, cut up some squash and put in olive oil with cajun and garlic seasonings. WOW this is really GREAT. thanks for sharing.
I thought these tasted fine, but I had a couple of problems. I couldn't understand why the squash is not dipped in any liquid first? I wanted to follow the exact directions though. I ended up with about 1/2 of the cormeal leftover. Also, on some of them the skin stayed tough. Make sure to cut them the 1/8". The thinner ones were the best. In addition, make sure to use a smaller yellow squash. On the larger, or over grown ones, the skin is naturally tougher and with larger seeds. The ones I made with the overall smaller yellow squash were the ones that turned out well.
This is a great quick squash recipe. The only change I suggest is add seasonings to fit your taste. I followed the recipe as listed and then added dried rosemary, parsley, basil, garlic powder, and sea salt. Imagine fried okra but with the flavor of squash.
I made this for my son and I, just as written, and we thought it was really good. It was our first time trying yellow squash and I think we both agree that we'll be eating it again. I did salt the squash after it was fried. Very tasty!
I added a little chili powder to the mix. Instead of putting the squash in the bag of corneal, I dipped each slice in oil, then dipped in the batter, then fried. Taste good.
Never had tasted yellow squash before so looked here for a recipe so easy and turned out great!
This is pretty close to the way my Grandmom always cooked squash. For a real kick try frying in bacon drippings.
Bummer! Followed recipe to the tee.Squash was soggy not crisp. No cigar.
