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.

  1. Directions are a bit confusing. I think you meant to say : toss the fries w\ the oil and seasonings – THEN – place them in a single layer on the rack ?? 🙂

  2. Is the butternut squash supposed to go on the cooling rack that’s on the baking sheet?

  3. Awesome Recipe and looks so delicious. Thank you
