Squash Fritters

Needing a different idea for what to do with all the fresh squash you're getting this summer? This is a simple recipe that some call squash fritters and some call it squash cakes. Whatever you want to call it, give it a try. This recipe makes a lot (6 servings), so you might want to cut the recipe in half the first time.

2 cups grated raw squash
1 small onion, grated (more or less to taste)
1/2 tsp pepper
1 Tablespoon sugar
6 Tablespoons self-rising flour or biscuit mix
2 eggs, slightly beaten
2 tsp. butter, melted
Oil for frying

Mix together squash, onion, pepper and sugar.

Add flour and eggs. Mix only until squash is coated. Stir in butter. Heat oil in pan, just enough to coat well. Drop batter by tablespoons into hot pan. Cook until golden brown and turn once (or more if needed).
