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!

Chef's Notes

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.


  1. Don t over cook.
  2. The worst recipe I've gotten from Allrecipes in 15 years! I was doing Butternut Squash for "Three Sisters Soup" which I love saw this and decided to try it. I used 1/2 of the neck of a big squash to get consistent fries about 1/2" square 4" long shook them in a bag of the - Read more ...
  3. should have made the chips a bit bigger wasn't aware they'd shrink so much in the oven but so easy and yummy.

  6. This recipe is wonderful. My husband who doesn't like vegetables went back for thirds. Next time I'll keep the garlic in larger pieces and slice the squash smaller.
  7. Incredible. My husband recently confessed he was not enjoying all of the yellow squash I had been serving him. We are eating Paleo and low carb.

  9. This is my new favorite squash recipe! My VERY picky two year old even loved it when I told him they were french fries. I didn't have fresh thyme and though I'm sure it would be even better dried was good too. We will be making this again.
  10. These were so good and tasted like sweet potato fries!
