Ingredients
  • 1 - 2 pound butternut squash
  • PAM Spray Olive Oil
  • Salt
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Peel and cut the squash into long, thin french fry shapes (roughly ⅓″ thick).
  3. In a large bowl, spray and toss the squash with PAM, using your hands to evenly coat each one. Lay them on a wire rack set on top of a foil-lined baking sheet and salt them generously.
  4. Bake for about 40 minutes, flipping halfway through for even crispness. Serve immediately with extra salt and ketchup.

  12. How do you peel butternut squash? Or am I making something big out of something simple? Sounds great.

    • Leslie Moyer says:

      Re: peeling butternut squash….. I try to choose butternut squash with a smaller round end and a longer neck. Then, I just cut off the round end and set it aside. (You can use it later as you might acorn squash.) Then I cut off the top of the squash (the end where the stem was attached). Then I set the prepared “neck” piece on one of its flat ends on a cutting board (making a tall “column”) and I slice the skin off in small sections down towards the cutting board. Make sense? If the neck is really long, you can cut it in half so that you have two columns, making it not so unwieldy.

    • Hi Rebeca, if you scroll through the comments, one of my readers left a great explanation :-)
