Butternut Squash Fries

When people think of healthier ways to enjoy fries, they think of sweet potato fries. Those are good, but butternut squash fries are also a great option!

Butternut squash and sweet potato fries are low in fat and sodium and high in vitamins and minerals like vitamin A, C and potassium, but sweet potato fries are double the calories, carbs and sugars.

The key to butternut squash is that it needs to be baked slightly over the time you think it needs to be. The fries need to be crunchy and not gooey. Firm, perfect for dipping!
