Cook time
Total time
Serves: 6
  • 1 small butternut squash, peeled
  • olive oil spray
  • salt & pepper (or Cajun seasoning)
  • 3 slices of bacon, cut into lardons and cooked until crispy
  • ½ cup shredded cheddar
  • 2 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 3 Tbl. sour cream
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray baking sheet with olive oil.
  2. Cut the neck off the butternut squash and peel (reserve bulb portion for another dish). Using a mandolin or sharp knife thinly slice the butternut squash into chips. Place in a single layer on baking sheet and spray with olive oil. Sprinkle with seasoning. Bake for 12 - 15 minutes, depending on thickness, until just tender and beginning to lightly brown.
  3. Remove from oven and top with crumbled bacon, scallions, and shredded cheddar. Return to oven and bake an additional 5-7 minutes until cheese is bubbly. Allow to cool slightly before topping each with a dollop of sour cream.
The chips will crisp up as they cool slightly. You can also prepare the chips ahead and then top and bake them before serving.
