    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:35min 

    1. Preheat the oven to 220 C / Gas 7.
    2. Use a sharp knife to carefully cut away the peel from the squash. Cut the squash into sticks. Arrange squash pieces on a baking tray and season with salt.
    3. Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, turning the fries over halfway through baking. Fries are done when they are starting to brown on the edges and become crispy.

    I shook these in a gallon zip-loc bag with olive oil and kosher salt. I spread them evenly on baking sheets and flipped often. Occasionally the excess water from the squash would pool in the pans so I drained them once or twice during baking and I really think this helped cut down on the mushiness. They are softer than french fries, but mine were not really mushy. Delicious!! My kids liked these as well as the adults at my dinner tonight. I will make these again for sure.  -  21 Sep 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
