Charlotte's Butternut Squash Fries


This is my favorite side dish, and the first thing I've made all by myself. It goes great with pretty much anything and is a perfect side for a Thanksgiving dinner or just a cold fall day. Hope you enjoy!

  • 1 butternut squash - peeled, seeded, and cut into strips

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 2 teaspoons paprika

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced, or more to taste

  • 3 sprigs fresh thyme, leaves stripped, or more to taste

  • salt to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Lightly oil a baking sheet.

  2. Mix squash, olive oil, paprika, garlic, thyme, and salt together in a bowl until evenly coated; spread in a single layer onto the prepared baking sheet.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven until squash is tender and lightly browned, 30 to 40 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Serve it plain, or make a tasty spiced aioli dip with it! Simply combine mayonnaise, olive oil, paprika, cayenne, garlic, and salt. There are no measurements for the dip, so write it down if you find a good balance.
