Squash Five Ways in Five Days – Day 2

What’s up people?? I am sticking to my guns and as promised will be providing you with another tasty squash recipe. I don’t have a whole lot of time to dedicate to today’s post so I’m keeping this short and simple – like the recipe itself!

Baked Acorn Squash “Fries”

What you’ll need:

  • one acorn squash
  • olive oil
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
  • salt and pepper

What to do:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Cut the acorn squash in half. Scoop out the guts and seeds.
  3. Place acorn squash cut side down and slice¬†horizontally to keep the scalloped edges (because they’re pretty – duh).
  4. Cut the slices in half for smaller “fries”.
  5. Place the squash on a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil, parmesan cheese, salt, and pepper. Toss the squash around a bit to coat.
  6. Bake in the oven for about 25 minutes or until tender (baking time may vary based off of the thickness of your squash slices). The parmesan cheese should be a bit crispy and golden brown when done.
  7. Eat!

These “fries” are almost as addicting as the real thing. They were supposed to be a side dish, but the husby and I ended up standing over the stove and eating every last one in a few minutes. Which I was completely okay with.

Enjoy!
