Squash patties

I love squash. All squash. I make these patties out of yellow summer squash or zucchini or a mix of both. They’re almost like eating a hash brown. The longer you let the shredded squash drain, the more bite to the patty. These are a great vehicle for anything you want to put on top or straight out of the skillet. My daughters and I make ourselves sick eating these ?


  1. 6 medium zucchini, shredded
  2. 2 heaping tbsp minced onion
  3. 1 cup finely crushed butter crackers, I use ritz
  4. 2 beaten eggs
  5. 1 tsp each Pepper, onion and garlic powders
  6. 1 tsp sugar, optional
  7. Dash cayenne, optional


  1. First thing you do is shred the squash into a colander that’s inside a bigger bowl. Next, salt the zucchini in the colander and mix it around. Allow the zucchini to sit and drain. I usually do this earlier in the day so I can get all the water I can out of it. When you’re ready to mix, wring out the squash with your hands and get all the water out that you can.

  2. In clean bowl, mix all the ingredients together well. It will still produce some water.

  3. In a large skillet, heat a couple tbsps of olive oil on medium-medium/high heat and drop rounded spoonfuls into the oil. I use a slotted spoon and kind of flatten the top a little. Cook til golden brown and delicious on both sides. NOTE: I do these in batches. I fit a sheet pan with a cooling rack and set my oven to 200 degrees to keep the cooked ones warm.
