Mouth Watering Monday-Fries!!! Low Cal? YES!!!
I found an awesome recipe!! (thank you Hungry Girl!!) Check out her site!! You will love it just like I do! http://www.hungrygirl.com/ We all know that fries are a no no when we are dieting but not anymore! My kids and hubby loved this recipe and so did I!! They were sweet and salty and almost like eating dessert. SO GOOD!!
1/2 butternut squash (I used a full butternut squash and the kids said next time use 3 LOL!!)
Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees. Peel and de-seed your butternut squash. If you're unfamiliar with handling them, you may have a little trouble at first. They're fairly easy to peel, but you'll need a sharp knife to cut them. Once your orange friend is peeled and seed-free, slice it in half. Then cut it up into French fry shapes. I used a fry cutter to make authentic looking fries, but they'll work any way you slice 'em. Place on a cookie sheet sprayed with non-stick spray. Cover lightly with kosher salt (regular salt works, too, but we prefer kosher). Place tray in your pre-heated oven and bake for 40 minutes or so, flipping halfway through baking process. Fries are done when they are starting to brown on the edges and get crispy.
