How to make Squash Blossoms stuffed with Mozzarella and Anchovies







Pick the squash blossoms, trying to choose the male plants.  They have one big stamen. 


(Was that too graphic?) 


That way the female blossoms still produce a squash!


Shake them free of any bugs and give a quick rinse and pat dry. 


Prepare  a plate with a scrambled egg, and one with flour .


Stuff each blossom with  an anchovy and a cube of cheese.

 

Roll first in egg, then in flour, twisting the end of the blossom closed.


Fry until  golden on all sides in vegetable oil, like canola.


Drain on a paper bag and enjoy while warm.
