Summer Squash Fries Recipe

These Summer Squash Fries are fries that you can eat without guilt. Since the rind on summer squash is soft there is no need to remove it. For a variety you can add a bit of Parmesan cheese to the breadcrumbs. Another addition could be some sesame seeds. Other summer squash varieties like zucchini can be used. If you use butternut squash it is better to peel it.
