Now that summer is here (at least where I am from), heating the house for supper is not my idea of fun. But I sure do love to cook. So I found a couple of easy quick recipes to help me with not cooking so much. One is my favorite and a great way to use up the squash, which is plentiful in the summer.
You can use either squash or zucchini. Both grow super fast so you should be able to find either one in the summer at your local farmer’s market if you don’t grown your own. It is super easy and can be made to be gluten free easy.
3 Squash, shredded
1/2 to 1 cup of cornmeal
1 onion chopped (optional)
salt, pepper, garlic to taste.
Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Make into patties, like hamburger. Put in a little oil in a frying pan, if you wish. I use a non stick pan but when I use my cast iron I add oil. Pan fry until done. Using cornmeal means there is no gluten. I use a local cornmeal and love it. I mean who would not like to use local items.
Here is my local cornmeal!!!!
Pair these patties with some ham of your choice. I like Kentucky Legend brown sugar.
Hope you enjoy and would love to hear if you tried these. Next week I will have another simple summer recipe for y’all!!
