Crispy Baked Chili Squash Fries

Apparently I’ve been hoarding recipes.  I honestly thought I had nothing to post and I just checked my “to be posted” file on my computer and found a ton of pictures waiting for me to sift through.  So here I am.  I also didn’t just check it, as it’s been a couple hours of sorting, editing and organizing and nap time is almost over now, so I’ll get right to it!

As much as I love sweet potato fries and squash “fries” they will never be crunchy like regular old potato fries.  I’m happy with how my oven fries usually turn out and I’m always left feeling a ton better than if we go out for regular crispy crunchy fried fries.  But at the same time, sometimes I just need something crunchy.  Like really, honestly, crunchy, not at all how oven sweet potato fries usually turn out.  Enter these squash fries.  They may not be your typical fries, but they’re crunchy, and they’re exactly what I wanted Crispy Baked Chili Squash Fries

I really love these.  And what kid can resist something breaded and crunchy like these, even if it is squash in the middle.  Plus, you can adapt these fries to whatever you like.  The same method will work with sweet potatoes, and you can literally use any spices, herbs, and other flavorings that you want.  Or just keep it simple and have some plain fries, just as long as they have enough salt to bring out the yummy squash flavor.
