5 Stars for flavor, I love butternut squash. 1 Star for recipe time. The first batch at less than the 40 minutes specified were BLACK sticks. 2nd batch worked. The small ones at 10 minutes and the larger ones at about 18 minutes. Would also be good with a kick like paprika or some other spice.
This is crazy good! No leftovers good. I was worried at first because I didn't have any ketchup, but didn't miss it.
I DID cook on a raised rack over a baking sheet, so they didn't stick to the pan.. Covered the pan with foil to make cleanup easy.
Next time I make this, I will pile them on a plate and try melting Parmesan or asiago cheese on top.
To reduce the mess from spraying oil/ sprinkling salt, I tossed the squash in a bowl with seasoned salt and olive oil to evenly coat everything. (this also lets you control the amount of ingredients so not too salty/oily)
Really quite good, although be warned that the fries will shrink significantly by the time they are done cooking. I used a whole squash and I barely had enough for four tiny servings. They were so tasty, so we were sad that we didn't have any more. Thanks for sharing.
SUPER easy & yummy! Sprayed w/butter cooking spray & baked for closer to an hour but LOVED these!
Loved the flavor! I took mine out at 35 minutes because they were starting to burn, but they weren't crisp at all. I'm not sure if that meant I cooked them too long or not long enough. The flavor was excellent though. I adore sweet potato fries and these definitely rivaled them. I just wish they had been at least a little firmer. My Pampered Chef serrated peeler made peeling it a breeze. Will definitely make again.
Yummy! This was so easy and completely delicious! This is the first time I tried butternut squash so I wanted something simple to start with so I could really get a feel for the flavor of this veggie. This recipe sure fit the bill! Thanks so much for sharing.
First, a few amendments I made to the recipe... I brushed the fries with olive oil before baking. I also sprinkled cinnamon, paprika, and kosher salt over them before putting them in the oven. The result was amazing! They were crunchy yet soft and tasted great. I have a nine year old who hates sweet potato fries, but adored these. Granted he really likes butternut squash, but usually only with butter and brown sugar. He asked if we could make these again this weekend he liked them so much!
I really enjoyed this recipe, however the rest of the family gave it a zero star rating.
Love love love these!!! Made for the first time last night. Buttered the bottom of cookie sheet cuz I hate cooking spray. Used kosher salt and fresh ground pepper. DELICIOUS!!!
I tried it last night with a half of my pre-cut butternut squash. I, too, ended up with black burnt squash fries like Ambervim reported last year. Half weren't too bad and were edible. They were edible. Next time, I'll try it differently by adjusting the temperature and the time to cook.
