Spicy Butternut Squash Oven Fries With Apples

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Bergy

Well here I was with quite a large squash so I decided to try something a bit different and came up with this recipe. We enjoyed it and I hope you will too. Because I was just creating this recipe and most people like a bit of oil I used a tbsp, but you can eliminate it--the spices will adhere to the squash without it!

Good idea! I drizzled maple syrup over my fries for a sweet side dish. It cooked exactly according to time and I opted to shake the spices and oil in a pot to reduce waste. Every little bit counts... Thanks!
