Too Much Squash!

We have two yellow squash plants in our garden and you'd think there was 20. I love squash but sheesh. Found this really yummy recipe and tweaked it a bit so I thought I'd share.
Squash Patties
3 10-12 inch yellow squash, shredded
6 green onions, chopped
1/2 TBSP salt
1 c. wheat flour
1/2 c. real potato flakes
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 c. shredded cheddar cheese or pepper jack if you'd like to spice things up
ground black pepper to taste
You can also add green chile in here

Place squash in colander, sprinkle with salt and let drain for about 30 minutes, you can also press with a spoon
In a large bowl, mix the squash, onion, flour, potato flakes, egg, salt and cheese. Season with pepper.
Spray your griddle with Pam and drop 1/4 c. fulls then flatten out. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Yield 24 patties...which you can freeze.

Enjoy with sour cream or nothing at all. YUM!
