Squash 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.

  1. Curious about the title of squash fries. Wanted to see what kind of squash you were talking about. Was shocked when I learned it was butternut. Well I’ve never eaten one of those. Am anxious to try it now and see what the other people are raving about. I’ll let you know in a few days.

  2. Elana, I don’t know how I was able to get along before your website. My four and two year old are eating so healthy and loving it!!
    thank you so much!
    So dar I have cooked 14 days straight using your site and its been a blast!

  3. I was wondering if these can be frozen prior to cooking or cooked and froze?

    I am expecting a little one soon and I want to make things as easy as I can for my growing family.

    I love your recipes, I’ve tried quiet a few. Thanks!
