Satisfy your junk food craving with a healthier option: baked butternut squash fries, paired with your favorite dipping sauce.




  1. Preheat oven to 425˚F. Grease a large rimmed baking sheet with nonstick spray.
  2. Chop the ends off your butternut squash and peel it. Cut it in half and scoop out all the seeds; discard or save for roasting.
  3. Cut the flesh into wedges or sticks, whatever looks like french fries to you. Add the fries and oil to a large bowl, tossing to coat evenly. Place on the greased cookie sheet in a single, even layer, and sprinkle evenly with coarse sea salt.
  4. Bake for 40 minutes, flipping halfway through the baking process. The fries are done when they are browned on the edges and crispy.
  5. Serve with ketchup, or whatever dipping sauce you typically enjoy with potato or sweet potato fries.
