Secret Recipe Club - Butternut Squash Fries



Its time for Secret Recipe Club again - I love being part of this fun club! My favorite part of the SRC is assignment day - I love when I get that e-mail in my inbox with the link to the blog that I get to choose my recipe from. I also love that all of my assignments have all come from blogs I have never been to before, it's really a great opportunity to find some fabulous bloggers out there and some delicious recipes. If you are not familiar with exactly how this club works, you can stop by the website and learn all about it - maybe even join in! Basically you are (secretly) assigned a blog to checkout, browse through their recipes, choose one to make and blog about it. It's a lot of fun!
This month my assignment was Fallon's Cucina, Fallon is the voice behind this great blog. Fallon has so many great recipes on her blog I had a hard time choosing what to make. Her desserts looked so good but I think after the holidays I have definitely had my fill of sweets (at least for a little while - like until Valentines Day.) I am a huge fan of Sweet Potato Fries so when I saw Butternut Squash Fries in her recipe index I knew I had to give them a try. 
Oh My Goodness!
If you like sweet potato fries, you are going to love these!  Sweet Girl and I polished off this plate in one sitting they were so good.  I made a chipotle mayo for dipping and served ketchup with them too.  The Chipotle Mayo is simply a bit of canned chipotle along with some of the adobo sauce mixed into mayo (I use light mayo.) 

Here is a picture of Sweet Girl dipping in the ketchup - that was her dip of choice.  Please try these, I promise you will love them.  And Fallon - I will be back for those Lemon Ricotta Cookies...enjoy!!!



recipe from Fallons Cucina
Ingredients:
1 butternut squash, peeled, seeded and cut into sticks
Olive oil spray
Sprinkle of cinnamon
Salt and pepper

for dipping

Ketchup or Chipotle Mayo

Directions:
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Spray cookie sheet with olive oil spray.  Next, take the squash and spray with the olive oil spray and sprinkle with cinnamon, salt and pepper.
Spread out the fries on the cookie sheet and spray again with the olive oil. 
Bake for 20 minutes and then toss them again to coat the other sides and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes. They should look done when they are slightly brown. Serve with dipping sauces.
