Fried Vegetable Marrow
Marrow can be such a boring vegetable and if one has a glut what can one do with them other than stuff them, boil them or mix with tomatoes and onions. This is an old English recipe which helps to spice them up a bit! Serve with a good homemade tomato sauce, cheese sauce, chilli sauce or a brown onion gravy. Mashed potatoes go well with them and you can sprinkle them with grated cheese. They are a great favourite with children who might not normally want to eat marrow. 3 Medium Sized Vegetable Marrows Egg Breadcrumbs Hot oil Peel and boil the marrows until tender in salt and water.
