Haven't got the chance to try this yet, but it looks and sounds great. Would be a great appetizer for fall! Defiantly give it a try. I will update once I get a chance to try it myself.

I thought these were okay, and I did like the crunch the flakes provided, I just didn't think it was necessary in regards to flavor. I love the flavor and natural sweetness of butternut squash, and adding syrup made it more of a dessert. I'll remember this if I ever have a dinner party theme that could involve burgers and fries, because they would be a departure from the standard fare, but for myself I'll stick to classic roasted style.
