First things first: A lot of you asked how I got the squash to look so “fry-like.” It’s thanks to this cool gadget, called a “fry cutter,” that looks something like this:
“Butter(nut) Me Up” Fries
1 Butternut Squash
cinnamon (optional, but awesome)
oil or oil spray
Cut the squash into fry shapes (using a fry cutter or a knife). Preheat the oven to 425 F. Put the fries and spices into a big Ziploc-type bag and mix. Line a baking sheet with tin foil, then toss in a little oil or spray with a bit of oil spray. (Wipe with a paper towel so it’s even on the foil.) Spread your fries on the baking sheet and shove ’em in the oven. Bake for 30-40 minutes, depending on how crispy you like your fries, and depending on how many fries you put on the baking sheet.
