This recipe comes to us from Hungry Girl. She’s a smart cookie when it comes to finding ways to curb your cravings without adding all the extra calories. French fries are an American staple – but anyone looking to keep their waistline small knows they are trouble. This is an AMAZING alternative to the oil-laden potato. Thanks Hungry Girl!!
Only 2 simple ingredients: 1/2 cup Butternut Squash – Sea Salt (or kosher salt). Another idea is seasoning salt.
Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees.
Peel and de-seed your butternut squash. They’re fairly easy to peel, but you’ll need a sharp knife to cut them. Once your orange friend is peeled and seed-free, slice it in half. Then cut it up into french fry shapes. We like to use a crinkle cutter to make authentic looking crinkle cut fries, but they’ll work any way you slice ’em. Place on a cookie sheet sprayed with non-stick spray. Cover lightly with kosher salt (regular salt works, too, but we prefer kosher). Place tray in your pre-heated oven and bake for 40 minutes or so, flipping halfway through baking process. Fries are done when they are starting to brown on the edges and get crispy. Serve with ketchup, or however else you enjoy fries or sweet potato fries!
