  • 1 lb. yellow squash, unpeeled
  • 1/2 medium onion (4 oz)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter for frying


  • Shred the squash in your food processor using the shredding attachment. Place on clean towels and allow to drain for 10 minutes.
  • Finely chop the onion. Place in a colander to drain for 10 minutes.
  • Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, about 5 minutes.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk the egg with the salt, black pepper and garlic powder. Add the grated squash and the onion and mix to blend.
  • Brush the skillet with half of the butter. Measuring 1/4 cup per fritter, spoon the mixture onto the skillet. Fry without moving, 4-5 minutes, until you can see that the bottoms are browned.
  • Carefully flip to the other side and fry 4-5 more minutes, until browned on both sides. Brush the skillet with more butter and repeat with the remaining squash mixture.
