Stuffed Squash Blossoms

after my allergy shots tonight i went by the cambrian farmers market. i got a nice box of squash blossoms that was supposed to be $3.00 for 10 but ended up being $3.00 for 13. i guess someone at the farm can't count. anyway, i have been wanting to try this since i read about it in one of my italian food magazines. i had some mozzarella medallions in the fridge.

after gently washing the blossoms i stuffed them with mozzarella, then i made up a batter from flour, pellagrino, an egg, garlic salt, and fresh ground mixed peppercorns and dipped each one in it.

i fried them one at a time in a small pan of vegetable oil and drained them on a paper towel.

once the excess oil was drained i plated them and sprinkled them with a little gray sea salt.

the taste testers of team barbie have pronounced them yummy and requested more. :)

I didn't run into you at the farmers market either...but maybe that is because I live in Canada....wink...wink..Seriously though I love zucchini blossoms!!!When I was in Greece last Spring they were often on the lunch menu but always sold out!!!!

That is the most unique recipe I've seen posted in a long time. I'd so try that. Or just about anything Italian. :)
