This is an old favorite that I picked up years ago. It’s so good that my husband and kids would eat it without crying because it’s a veggie, let alone yellow.
All you need is a yellow squash, 1 egg, some Pam spray (high heat), and a box of Jiffy Corn Muffin mix. Salt & pepper. That’s it!
Wash and slice the squash into thin pieces…I made a few nuggets in the back just to see how they turned out. Coat each slice in the egg turning in the bowl. Salt and pepper, they drop into a baggie filled with corn muffin mix.
Preheat air fryer to 450. Spray the air fryer basket with a little high temp cooking spray (I used Crisco Grill spray), shake off excess corn muffing mix, but make sure both sides are well-coated. Layer onto the cooking basket and spray the tops with cooking spray. If you don’t have an air fryer, preheat your oven to 450F and bake for about 20 minutes. Just watch them to see how long it takes you oven since this can vary.
Air fry for 5 minutes, flip over and fry for another 2-3 minutes or until crispy and brown on both sides.
Let these cool for a few minutes and enjoy! Low calorie, filling, crunchy, and salty…all good in my book! you could dip these in ranch and I am sure it would be delicious, but I just like mine plain!
Hope you enjoy this recipe! I think it’s smokin hot!
