Ingredients
  • 1 butternut squash (large enough to yield 1 pound once peeled and sliced)
  • 1/8 teaspoon coarse salt, plus more, optional
  • Ketchup, as dip, optional
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

  • Peel squash with a vegetable peeler. Slice the ends off the squash, and then cut it in half width-wise. Cut the round bottom piece in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds.

  • Using a crinkle cutter or a knife, carefully cut squash into spears or French-fry shapes. Thoroughly blot moisture away with paper towels, and sprinkle evenly with salt.

  • Spray a broiler pan, a baking rack placed over a baking sheet, or a baking sheet with nonstick spray, and then place spears flat on it.

  • Bake in the oven 20 minutes, and then carefully flip spears. Continue to bake until tender on the inside and crispy on the outside, about 20 minutes longer.

  • Serve with ketchup for dipping, if using. Enjoy!
