We are still working on our new healthy eating plan and have been looking for alternative recipes for our favorite foods. If you follow Grandma Bonnie's Closet on Pinterest you may have noticed I have pinned lots of dairy free, gluten free and paleo recipes. One of the pins I see popping up in various forms is butternut squash fries. Now I have made sweet potato fries before and found they were OK but not a favorite. I had this butternut squash sitting on my counter for several days. I wanted to make a healthy snack for Little Bug. Why not try these new fries? So, here we go!
First I boil the squash for about eight minutes on the bottom. ( do not over boil or the squash will be to soft.) Then flip and boil for eight on the top.
I did this to soften the peel. This makes it easy to cut and peel.
Now cut the squash in french fry strips. Toss the fries in olive oil and bake in a preheated 400 deg. oven Once fries are beginning to brown flip over. Bake until preferred crispness.
Little Bug enjoyed his fries!
