We’ve been having fun with our patty pan squash. Three little plants surely can produce a lot of squash! When Chad and Nicole were here, I made a patty pan squash pie. With the spices and texture, Vince said it tastes like a sweet potato pie.
Last night I experimented with Italian Patty Pan Squash Bites.
The squash was sliced about 1/4″ thick and the seed section was removed. I dipped it in an egg/buttermilk wash, then in seasoned flour (seasoning included salt, black pepper and Italian herb blend) and fried it. Fresh mozzarella cheese was thinly sliced and a piece of cheese was placed on top of each piece of squash. I stuck this under the broiler just long enough to get the cheese soft. One fresh basil leaf was placed on top of the cheese. A slice of fresh tomato topped it all.
It was yummy! We were saying we could even add a slice of bacon underneath that tomato . . that would be good too, huh?
For dinner, I heated up left over chicken parmigiana for Vince but I had just veggies.
Patty Pan Squash Bites, yellow squash and crowder peas. Everything but the mozzarella came from the garden. These are the dinners I love best of all!
