Would this statement be true: squash is a food that you either love or hate?
For all the squash haters out there – give this recipe a try! Squash can be a little hard to peel and cut, but besides that, these grands, or fries if you will, were so easy to make. It was such a nice spin on the usual baked squash recipes. This could be a good option for getting kids to eat their veggies too, since it’s in french fry form. Simply put, they taste and look like sweet potato fries; you could probably trick someone and say they are really soft sweet potato fries, and they wouldn’t know! It could be a great alternative with a burger and/or hot dog, but I consider it a delicious dessert. Enjoy!
