BUTTERNUT SQUASH FRIES
Huh? Butternut squash fries?
Deep frying is better than baking, but they're good baked too as long as you toss them with some oil first. If you bake them, I suggest doing a thicker cut because you do have to turn them half way through, and it's a royal pain in the ass to turn a million little shoestrings!
Just peel the butternut squash and cut it into your desired size. Deep fry until golden, or toss with some veg oil, then arrange on a baking sheet and bake at 425 until they start to get brown on the bottom... at which time you will turn them and let them brown on the other side. Salt to desired taste and enjoy. A drizzle of honey is good, if you want to add a sweet element.
