Roasting Butternut Squash for Toddler Food

Suggestion for Making Toddler Squash Fries.

Cut the ends off of the butternut squash

Cut length wise, once and down the middle, scoop out the seeds, rub with MELTED butter, roast on cookie sheet (parchment paper would be ideal) at 375 until it's done like a potato (by feel).

Pull it out, scrape skin off with spoon, cube.


Cut the ends off

Peel with a peeler, cut the squash into french fry shapes, rub with melted butter and roast at 400 until they're done (between 15-20 minutes depending on size, the man suggests turning the fries once to help brown), cool

Mix some cinnamon with Ketchup (this is used with sweet potato fries)
If you were making a puree with chicken stock he suggests using pumpkin pie spice.
