This clean eating sage butternut squash fries recipe is the perfect snack for an autumn afternoon. They make a great after-school snack and adults will love them just as much as kids! And what a great way to get some veggies!
Butternut squash is an autumn standard in my kitchen. My little guy loves it roasted with herbs. So when I found these cut fries all packaged and ready to go from Trader Joe’s, I just had to grab a bag. Oh, and Whole Foods carries these as well. I think a lot of stores are carrying them now. So check out your local produce section to see if they carry them! The pre-cut squash really does make life easier.
Plus, what kid doesn’t want fries? You don’t have to tell them these are actually good for them! Just bake them, whip up a little clean eating ketchup and you’re in business!
The thing I really love about these fries (over regular potato fries) is that these are totally easy to reheat! Just pop them back on a pan and stick them in the oven again. Can’t do that with potato fries! At least not in my experience. They get too dried out and hard. But not the butternut fries. No sir! They bake up super well the second time around, so no food waste if you don’t eat them all in the first sitting!
