Number of Servings: 4


    2 butternut squashes with long necks
    Parmesan cheese
    Olive oil
    Kosher salt
    Pam cooking spray (optional)


You can also microwave the chips; each batch takes about 10 minutes on high power.


1 Preheat the oven to 375°F. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.

2 Cut the necks of the squashes off of the bases. Peel each neck and slice it into thin slices, about 1/8th of an inch thick.

3 Drop the slices into the boiling water and boil for 2 minutes (this allows the squash to get crispy when baked). After 2 minutes, carefully drain and rinse under the faucet until the slices are cool to the touch. Pat the slices with a towel to remove excess water.

4 Cover two baking sheets with parchment paper, and top them with slices. Be careful that the slices do not touch. Brush with a bit of olive oil, sprinkle on a little kosher salt, and top with finely grated Parmesan cheese. You may also spray with a Pam cooking spray if you need a little more without adding additional calories and fat.

5 This is the tricky part – bake the chips until crispy, for about 15-20 minutes. Make sure to keep an eye on them and remove them when they turn brown and crispy – the timing for your oven may be shorter or longer! We had to remove them in intervals, since our oven is a bit uneven.

Once cooled, store in an airtight container for up to one week.
