My wife and I really enjoyed this dish. But, of course, I did not follow the recipe very closely. (btw: the dog gave a big ‘thumbs’ up for the leftovers also) I used about a 1 3/4 cup cheese. I used a very sharp cheddar and also some nice jarlsberg rather than a generic American cheese. Instead of ‘salt’ I used lowery’s seasoned salt, 2 teaspoons. (and after mixing in the salt, I let it stand covered in fridge for a few hours before draining the extra liquid) I added 3 minced cloves of fresh garlic. Tossed in some dry seasoning; cumin, basil, oregano, cilantro… and probably some other stuff. I pan fried them at med-high heat in olive oil until they had a light crispy crust (about 3 minutes per side) Served with sour cream and a dash of crystal hot sauce.

I don't understand the part about draining the squash. Putting salt on it is supposed to extract water? Nothing drained from mine. We ate these with Ranch dressing, and the dressing was all you could taste. This recipe is going to make a LOT of patties unless you the number of servings.

This was delicious. We love fried squash, but not the mess. This is much easier and the squash is nice and crispy. Make sure to make small patties.

My family loves this recipe!! We may use a bit more cheese but otherwise we don't change a thing. This recipe makes more than we can typically eat at one meal and we store it in a zip top bag in the fridge and it does great!

I used half zucchini and half yellow squash. I also added a clove of chopped garlic to the mixture before frying. It was delicious!

What a great change of pace for yellow squash. Will add green onions next time.

Very good! I used 3 little squash and kinda just altered the rest of the ingredients. A very kid friendly way to serve squash. I've been making a lot of squash this summer and the kids are pretty scared of it...but not anymore.

Grateful for a new recipe to help use some of the buckets full of Squash. I might add some garlic or even fresh pepper to give a little added flavor.
