Hey folks some of you may have had this before, I hadn't and it's extremely good . With fresh squash coming in, you need to try!
6 to 8 squash cut into pieces
1 medium onion, chopped
Salt (to taste)
Pepper (to taste)
Par boil squash and onion until tender, but not a mush
Add 1/4th stick of margarine to squash and onion and cream with potato masher along with 1 egg
Add enough corn meal to make into patties (like salmon patties)
In a large skillet add enough oil to coat bottom well
Drop in squash/onion patties and fry until golden brown on each side
Delicious with fresh vegetables and replaces cornbread!
My wife makes the same dish except she doesn't put in margarine and uses Mexican cornbred mix instead of plain meal. It gives just a little different taste. But you are right, it is goooood.
We gathered enough squash just now, and I showed her your receipe, and she is going to make some for supper tonight, and put margarine in it, and see what happens.
We just enjoyed our first squash of the season last night. We are going to try this using the second "mess".

Billy, hope you like it. That is the tame recipe because I didn't know if anyone likes hot seasoning as much as I do. I sometimes use the packets of jalapeno pepper cornbread mix from the grocery store and cut up a little more pepper in it, but some people don't like it as hot as I do.
Hope your garden is doing well. Ours isn't doing anything at all. NO rain since April 7 and we are in an extreme drought condition here and ALL outdoor watering is banned. Hope you enjoy the squash and onion patties! Pete
Tried your receipe last night and it was good. Like you, I prefer the hotter seasoning. I wouldn't back up from either one though. Our garden is starting to come in now. Already pulled the onions and the pinto beans are through. Had the garden cultivated and real clean, and the rain came, and now my peas have grass as high as they are. Will pick some cream peas today when the grass drys a little. I have seen where the southeast is in a drought condition. Maybe some clouds will blow in from the gulf and you will start getting a little rain. May be too late though.
Glad you enjoyed the squash patties. Good to hear your garden is doing so well! Yesterday afternoon, late, we finally got about 1/2 inch of rain, but there is no more in sight. May just have to wait until next year.
You and the wife take care, and God Bless! Pete
This just made me down right hungry for some...it's 9:30pm and no squash in the house.....but I have a fresh Zucchini I just picked this evening and going to use this recipe right now...the squash would be much better though.
Flag, the zuchinni should be just fine. I plan to try them just as soon as mine comes in. Hope you enjoy . Pete
I made some of these the other night with some fresh green beans and the wife loved 'em We will be making more!!
I bought an old tractor all dusty and worn,
knew nothing about her just the year she was born
I washed her and greased her and painted her red
Now she lives happily right here in my shed.

Kodiak, glad you liked the patties! I can tell you one thing about them, they are addictive . A friend gave me the receipe a while back and I can't seem to be able to make enough of them. Barbara and I both love them and I have been experimenting with doctoring them up in different ways and haven't found any way that we don't like them yet!
Hey Flag, I'm glad you enjoyed them! My Mom is 90 years young and she had never tried them or heard of them before, so I guess you can teach an old dog new tricks now and then. . Pete
