inspired summer eating : stuffed squash blossoms




I never know what the Farmers Market at Grand Army Plaza will bring each Saturday. I couldn't resist the squash blossoms! (only $5 for 20 blossoms) Not having any ideas on what to do with them, I turned to Twitter. Sabine of La Marquise des Anges was kind enough to send me this simple recipe for Bacon & Ricotta Stuffed Squash Blossoms. I wanted something that didn't require deep frying. So this was perfect.


The blossoms themselves do not have a very strong flavor to them. It was very easy to prepare. I opted for the low fat version of the recipe (using part-skim ricotta and turkey bacon). This would make great summer garden party appetizer. It was delicious and too pretty not to document!
