A slimmed down version of southern style fried yellow squash.



  1. Place iron skillet on stove and get pan hot.

Squash is one of my favorite vegetables and this is the way I always prepare it, except that I don't add the cornmeal; I just don't think it's necessary. The dish is delicious without it.

I was doing this already, but I don't put the cornmeal in it. I also left the bag in the fridge over night or a couple of days then cooked it. I think it really had time to soak up the olive oil and seasoning. Very good.
