Who says squash is boring? I know, I would totally rather have a big fat basket of real french fries…but these summer squash fries actually work to kill that craving.

Squash makes for a (surprisingly) tasty snack when you’re thinking about reaching for the fries or chips! Give these summer squash fries a try the next time you’re looking for a munchy. I used summer squash, but you can use any kind of squash you want. Many people use zucchini to make fries, that’s an option too!

They’re also a really great side dish to serve alongside burgers, barbecue chicken, or fried chicken. You can also cut the squash into cubes and create croutons for your green salad!

I chose to bake my summer squash fries, but you can absolutely throw them in your fry daddy or air fryer. It really just depends on what kind of texture you’re after. I think baking them offsets the texture of cooked squash. I think frying them in oil would make for a soggy mess, if you try it, I’d love to know how they come out.

Let me know what you think, I think they’re pretty tasty. Dip em in Primal Kitchen ketchup, ranch if you can tolerate dairy, or homemade mayo.

    It s not a french fry, but it s a tasty fried vegetable that is deep fried in bacon grease. Most of the keto french fried vegetable recipes call for baking, but this recipe is about a special blend of seasoning and frying in bacon grease to give it a flavor to rejoice in!
