Acorn Squash Fries
- 1 acorn squash
- olive oil
- garlic salt (or seasoning of choice)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Peel your acorn squash (I actually sliced mine into chunks first to make it easier), remove the innards, and slice the squash into fry-like pieces. Line them on a baking sheet (try not to overlap) and drizzle a bit of olive oil over top (enough to lightly coat them). Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and garlic salt, and give them all a stir so every piece is evenly coated.
Bake in the oven for at least 30-45 minutes, flipping/stirring occasionally. If you get impatient like I did and you want them crispier, after 30 minutes, switch the oven to broil and broil for only 3-4 minutes, then flip fries and broil for 3-4 minutes. NOTE: If you broil, watch them VERY carefully because broilers can burn your food if you leave it too long!!
Once they are as crispy as you want, serve them up!
We ate these with some pork chops and salad, and they were a great side. Super easy, and much healthier than your typical potato fries. Try them out and enjoy!
