So as cold weather approaches, I’m trying out new winter squash recipes like there won’t be another winter coming. Remember my butternut squash mac-n-cheese? Too tasty for words!
Now I’m trying butternut squash–French-fry style. And the recipe is so easy, it’s practically foolproof.
Makes one generous serving of fries.
-about 1 1/2 cups butternut squash
-seasonings of choice (I used a little onion salt)
-Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Lightly grease a cookie sheet and set aside.
-Slice squash into fry-like strips. Toss in 1 t or less oil, or lightly coat with cooking spray. Lay on sheet and sprinkle lightly with seasonings.
-Bake for about 15 minutes. Remove sheet and flip fries, so the sides bake evenly. Bake another 20 minutes or so. Once the fries start to brown, remove from oven. If you like a crispier fry, broil for 3-4 additional minutes.
Serve warm with some tasty ketchup (my favorite comes from Trader Joe’s!).
