This recipe for squash croquettes is easy to make especially if you use an ice cream scoop (as the blogger for the site recommends) to help you make evenly shaped and round croquettes that fry up well. And don’t worry about the pan frying. There is really only a bit of oil (and butter, too, if you like) that needs to be used for this purpose. It is an advantage to put a pat of butter in with every couple of tablespoons of oil. That way, you get the health benefits of using oil over butter, but you retain the butter flavor. Only use the tiniest amounts and you will get the fabulous flavor . . . and it really bumps up the flavor of squash.
So this recipe is simple and straightforward with terrific instructions and photos that make is easy to do. These croquettes can be served alone as a snack, with a lunch including a great salad, or with dinner. Chicken, any meat, and fish would all taste great with this recipe. The recipe calls for panko breadcrumbs, which are specially made for deep frying and this kind of light pan frying. You can use your own, though, so don’t be concerned about that ingredient.
Squash is a terrific food, and contains a whole range of carotenoids that contribute to and support your good health. Some pundits argue that it is important to buy squash (especially if you are using winter squash) as an organic product since squash has been used between plantings of other crops to remove contaminants from the soil. That means the contaminants could remain in the squash. Squash is also action packed with vitamins A, C, B6, and B2 as well as minerals including copper, manganese, and potassium. So eat your squash!
