Recipe Serves 2-4
- Place the shredded squash in the middle of a clean dish towel. Fold up the towel and squeeze the liquid out so that the squash is mostly dry.
- Combine squash, garlic, onion, bread crumbs, cheddar, egg, salt and pepper in a large bowl until fully incorporated. Form into 3" patties, about 1/2 inch thick.
- Heat the olive oil over medium-high heat in a large frying pan. Cook the patties, a few at a time, for 2-3 minutes on each side or until they become crisp and brown on both sides.
- Keep warm in a 200 degree oven until ready to serve.
