  1. Set a large skillet over medium heat.

  3. Add the panko and stir for 1-2 minutes until the panko has toasted. Turn the heat off and stir in the goat cheese and basil. Salt and Pepper to taste.
  4. Spoon the filling into the squash blossoms and gently twist the petals together to seal.

  7. Whisk in the club soda.
  8. Dip each blossom in the batter. Shake off the drippings and carefully place in the hot oil.
  9. Pan-fry for 1-2 minutes per side. I usually turn mine 2-3 times.
  10. Remove from the pan the drain on a paper towel. Repeat if needed.
  11. Serve alone as an appetizer, with aioli, or over a salad as a light meal.
