butternut squash french fries

The other day, I noticed that I had 2 butternut squash sitting in my kitchen, waiting to be cooked.  The first I turned into butternut squash soup.

I wanted to be a bit more creative with the second one, so I figured I’d make fries out of them.  The boys must have eaten an entire 3 pound squash worth of oven fries.  They chowed on them all afternoon and then asked for more.  I ate quite a few myself, to me they were as sweet as candy.

Squash Fries

  1. Peel the squash and remove the seeds
  2. Cut squash into long thin slices (about ¼ inch thick by 2 inches long)
  3. Place squash in a large bowl and generously coat with equal parts grapeseed and olive oils
  4. Sprinkle with salt and toss
  5. Lay squash fries onto 2 or 3 large baking sheets
  6. Broil one tray at a time in oven until crispy
  7. Serve

Hope you enjoy this tasty winter treat as much as we did!
