Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Prepare two rimmed half sheet pans by covering with parchment paper or non-stick foil. Add your cooking fat to the pans, 2 Tbsp. per pan, and place pans in oven to heat.
  3. While oven is coming up to temperature, prepare your squash and batter:
  4. Wash and slice squash into 1/8-1/4 inch thick slices.
  5. Get out two shallow pans (I use old aluminum pie plates) and add egg and milk to one and almond flour to the other. Add 1/4 tsp. each salt and pepper to each pan.
  6. Beat egg and milk together very well.
  7. Stir together almond flour and seasonings.
  8. Dredge each piece of squash in the egg and milk mixture. Allow excess to drip off. It helps to keep one hand for the wet mixture and one hand for the dry mixture.
  9. Now dredge each slice in the almond flour. Tap gently to knock off any excess flour.
  10. Lay each piece on your prepared baking sheets in a single layer.
  11. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until nice and brown on the bottom.
  12. Flip each piece gently and brown the second side. This takes 8-10 minutes. Keep in mind, they will cook faster if you sliced your squash thinner and take a little longer if they are thicker. The times I’ve listed here are a guideline. You need to check on them periodically.
  13. Remove from oven when each piece is browned to your liking. Sprinkle on a little extra salt if desired. Serve hot!
