Butternut Squash “Fries:

Need to satisfy that “carb” craving? Don’t blow your day! Try this healthy twist on fries instead!! No they aren’t really fried; they’re roasted and you won’t be able to tell the difference. They are so flavorful and delicious. Be sure to bookmark this post because I know you’ll be coming back for more. 😉

 

Butternut Squash Fries

Wash and peel the squash.

Slice into strips (about 3-4 inches long; .5 inch wide)

Toss in a very small amount of olive oil (just enough to coat; drowning them will make them soggy)

Sprinkle with a few dashes of each: Salt, black pepper, garlic powder, paprika, and cayenne pepper. 

Place in a single layer on baking sheet.

Convection Oven: Bake for 18 minutes @ 400 or until golden brown. Toss halfway through.

Regular Oven: Bake for 23 minutes @ 425 or until golden brown. Toss halfway through. 

Enjoy!
