I have a confession: I am obsessed with French fries. Waffle fries, steak fries, frites, curly fries…I don’t have a type. Lately, though, I have been exploring recipes for a cleaner, healthier version of the French fry. First, I settled with a sweet potato fry (using this recipe, just with sweet potatoes!), but I wanted to go even healthier.
Enter the Butternut Squash Fry. A simple recipe both in the instructions and in the ingredients, and I love squeezing in another veggie serving for the day while still feeling like I’m indulging. The only thing missing was a fantastic sauce to dip these in.
(Pro tip: when de-seeding the squash, keep the seeds to roast! Such a satisfying snack.)
Enter the Fry Sauce. This is a popular item offered on fast food menus in some areas of the country and it is traditionally made with ketchup and mayonnaise. But I said to heck with tradition and made it my own with a bit of a kick.
Enjoy this combination of flavors that is perfect for an after school treat! (Cause we are almost there, mamas)
