Can we declare butternut squash an all-year round veggie? Because these fries need to be consumed 365 days out of the year.

Seriously.

And these fries can be eaten guilt-free too.

They’re completely baked, roasted to absolute perfection, and you can make these into skinny fries or thick fries depending on your fry-width preferences.

Just be sure to use freshly grated Parmesan cheese. It will make all of the difference in the world.

I promise! Because you know I would never lie to you.
