Submitted By: Dorothy Hawk


  • 2 cups yellow squash, finely chopped or grated
  • 1 cup onion, finely chopped
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons fresh chives, chopped (optional)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • Vegetable oil


In a large bowl, combine squash, onion, chives, egg, salt, and pepper. Mix well. Stir in flour.
In a skillet, heat 1/2-inch oil over medium-high heat. Drop batter by tablespoonfuls into oil. Cook about 3 minutes per side until golden brown, turning once. Drain croquettes on paper towel, and serve.
