Upgrade your fries by trying these parmesan butternut squash fries! Healthier than sweet potato fries but just as delicious!



  • 1 medium butternut squash
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 oz Parmesan cheese
  • Parsley (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 400.
  2. Spray a large baking pan with non-stick spray.
  3. Peel the butternut squash and then slice into fry shapes.
  4. The trick is to make all the pieces roughly the same size. You want them to be about 1/4″ thick. If they’re too thin, they’ll burn and if they’re too thick, they’ll get soggy.
  5. Toss in olive oil, sprinkle with salt, and spread in a single layer on the baking sheet.
  6. Bake for 10 minutes, then flip the fries.
  7. Bake for another 8-10 minutes or until the fries begin to brown.
  8. Once they’ve browned up, they’ll start to get crispy and they’ll be ready to take out of the oven!
  9. Let cool for a few minutes before taking them off the pan.
  10. Sprinkle with parsley before serving.
