Wise Fries

Face it, french fries are one of the greatest tasting foods known to man. But they're no-nos when it comes to dieting. Of course, if you're feeling ambitious, you can whip up a batch of HG's Bake-tastic Butternut Squash fries. Yep, you can make crispy, wonderful, sweet fries out of our new best friend, the butternut squash. And, what's even better is that this is our easiest recipe ever. So pay close attention. VERY close attention. Because what we're about to share with you may very well change your life...forever!

Ingredients
  • 1/2 butternut squash
  • kosher salt
Directions
  • pre-heat oven to 425 degrees
  • peel and de-seed your butternut squash
  • if you're unfamiliar with handling them, you may have a little trouble at first
  • 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 Mitch's legal ketchup (below), or however else you enjoy fries or sweet potato fries!
