How To Make Baked Delicata Squash Fries

Since I enjoy eating delicata squash so much, I make it several different ways 🙂  If you own an Instant Pot, check out my Instant Pot delicata squash recipe, you’ll love it!  You can also roast it in the oven without cutting into fries – take a look at my roasted delicata squash halves recipe.   You can also make delicata squash puree same way as pumpkin puree, and then use it in any of the recipes that call for pumpkin puree.

Aside from it’s naturally sweet and smooth taste, another thing I love about delicata squash is the fact that it’s skin is thin and edible.  This means you don’t have to peel delicata squash, and the less work for me the better 🙂

Easy Baked Delicata Squash

Making baked delicata squash fries is really easy.  To cut delicata squash into the half-moon shape, you need to first cut delicata squash in half lengthwise, scoop out and discard the seeds, then slice the squash halves into 1/4-inch-thick slices.  They’ll naturally be shaped like a half moon!  Once you slice delicata squash into fries, toss them with olive oil and bake in pre-heated 400F oven for 30 minutes.  When they are ready, sprinkle with salt, pepper and any of your favorite seasonings!  They are great with cinnamon too!  Enjoy!
