Fried Squash – only better! Why better, because it’s baked! When I figured up the calories in 1 cup of fried squash (365) vs 1 cup of baked squash (156), I decided that my fried squash days were over. It’s simply not worth the 200+ calories just to have it fried when the baked is as good or better!
Preheat the oven to 350°. Slice the squash into thin slices. Brush a baking sheet or bar pan (as pictured) with Olive Oil. If you use Cooking Spray, spray heavily.
- 1 cup Milk
- 1 egg
- Salt & Pepper
- Self Rising Cornmeal
Whisk together egg, milk, salt and pepper. Dip squash in the milk mixture then into the dry cornmeal and place onto the greased cookie sheet. Put in the oven and bake for 30 minutes (or until the squash is tender).
At 15 minutes, flip the squash over.
This is a much healthier option than the fried version. Tasty too!
