    8-10 medium crookneck summer squash, trimmed and sliced into 1/2 inch rounds (about 2 pounds)
    2 large eggs, lightly beaten                                   
    4 tablespoons butter, melted                                   
    1/2 cup milk

    2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley                     
    2 tablespoons sugar                                            
    1 teaspoon salt
