I love squash. I love all kinds of squash. Butternut is one of my recent favorites. I had been roasting it in some EVOO, salt & pepper, until I saw on various food blogs…..butternut squash fries!! Holy YUM!! Why didn’t I think of that? I make sweet potato fries all the time, why not butternut squash fries?
Making fries out of butternut squash is simple. I don’t even peel the squash! I wash it and cut the bottom off. Then, I cut into fry-like shapes (or as close as I can get to fry-like). Toss in extra-virgin olive oil or spray with Pam and season as you like. I just use sea salt & fresh ground pepper, but cayenne, chili powder & cumin would be tasty, too.
Toss into your preheated oven (375 or 400). Bake for 20-40 minutes, flipping once & keeping a close eye on. I showed pics of how they look going into the oven. I didn’t get an “after” shot. They went into my belly way too fast!
Super healthy & delicious with burgers, chicken or fish. I also like leftovers over a salad with other roasted veggies.
