Squash Fritters

Sharing is caring!

I love that these squash fritters can be eaten alone or as a side dish. Check this out to find out how to make squash fritters for your next meal.

How do you grate squash? How do you shred yellow squash?

Use a grater, like this one, and grate the squash as if you were grating cheese. Keep in mind, vegetables, like squash, will be watery. Unless your recipe calls for the “extra” liquid, you will need to drain the water from your squash/vegetable.

Can I substitute yellow squash for zucchini?

Any type of squash will work with this recipe, for the most part. Whenever you see a recipe that calls for yellow squash, you can always trade out for zucchini. Always read the recipe though, and make sure subbing won’t create a problem. Spaghetti squash could be the exception.

Can you freeze squash fritters?

Place in an airtight container after cooling to room temperature. Place in freezer. Will last up to 2 months in the freezer. To reheat, allow to thaw to room temperature. Reheat in an air fryer or oven for best results.
