Stuffed Squash Blossoms
1 Dozen Male Squash Bloom Buds
(Male flowers have no fruit at the base of the bud)
1 Cup Milk
1 Cup all Purpose Flower
1 Pkg. Sargento brand 4-Cheese Italian Style
1 Cup Marinara Sauce
*When squash plants bloom, they usually have more male flowers than female flowers. The female blooms will already have a tiny squash at the base of the flower. Yellow and Zucchini varieties are the best to use.
In a medium bowl, beat eggs. Add the milk and flour, stirring with a fork until almost smooth. Set aside.
Slice buds longways, then pop out the stamen and stuff with cheese. After stuffing all buds, dip them in the batter and allow excess to drain. Deep fry for about 1-1/2 to 2 minutes, or until a golden brown. Serve with Marinara sauce.
