Delicata Fries

Delicada is by far my favorite squash. No need to peel them. You can eat them skin and all. I was a big fan of home baked fries when I could still eat potatoes and yams. I was having tuber withdrawal and I decided to try the Delicada squash instead of potatoes and it turned out so good! Simple yet amazingly flavorful, these really hit the spot!
Serves: 4
  • 2 Delicata Squash
  • ½ Lemon
  • 2 tbsps Ghee or coconut oil
  • 4 tbsps Garlic infused oil
  • ¾ tsp Salt
  • ¼ tsp Black Pepper
  • ⅛ tsp Paprika
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  2. Cut squash in half and remove seeds
  3. Cut into thin "fry sized" strips lengthwise. *The more consistent you are with your strip widths the more likely the fries will cook at the same rate. If you have a few smaller pieces in there you might have to pull them out before the others are ready so they don't burn
  4. Put strips into a baking dish, sprinkle garlic infused oil and spices over squash and mix squash so they are covered in spices and coated in oil
  5. Add butter globs to pan and bake for 30 min
  6. Stir squash and turn oven up to 425 and bake another 30 min or until squash is nice and crispy.
  7. Squeeze lemon over squash right before they are about done baking
  8. Serving size claims that this is enough for 4 people but they are so yummy that it may only really last for two servings...
