Jeff will eat almost anything. Squash is something he really does not care for. I attempted this recipe because I thought it would hide the flavor and, most importantly, the texture of the squash. Plus, Jeff likes fried things. I was relieved when that reasoning turned out to be valid.
After the first taste Jeff said, "I can eat that." Phew.
The thing I found most surprising about this recipe is that it called for Bisquick. That was not an ingredient Noni kept in her kitchen. I remember once when lots of extended family was staying at my grandparents' house while they were away. My mom's childhood friend, whom I called "Aunt" Gene, was going to make pancakes for everyone. I wish I had a picture of her face when she started looking for the Bisquick and my cousins and I told her it didn't exist in Noni's house. I can almost picture her, gulp, realize she had to make something from scratch she wasn't used to doing. I don't even remember if we ended up having pancakes that day.
Here's another recipe with too-few-for-my-comfort instructions.
1 8 ounce corn muffin mix
1/2 Cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 Cup milk
2 Cup shredded unpeeled zucchini squash
1/2 Cup Bisquick
Mix and fry in small pancakes.
