Scrumptious 4 Minute Squash

2 medium or 1 very large squash (yellow or zucchini)
1 small onion, finely chopped (optional)
2 eggs, beaten
8 tablespoons GFCF flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 tablespoon GFCF margarine
1/2 tablespoon vegetable oil

Grate squash into a bowl using the large grating side of a box grater. Stir in the (optional) onion and eggs. Stir in flour, baking powder, salt, and pepper.

Melt margarine and oil together in a large non-stick saute pan over medium to medium high heat. Drop heaping tablespoons of batter into the pan, reducing heat to medium if/when margarine/oil begins to smoke. Cook about 2 minutes on each side, until browned. Drain on paper towels. Serves 6-8.

To keep them warm, remove paper towels and place them in a 300 degree oven for up to 30 minutes, on an oven-safe dish.

~ I don't think I will ever cook squash again, without grating it first. It cooks so much faster grated, which makes total sense, but I never thought about it until I tried this recipe...~
