It’s National Junk Food Day folks, and what’s our favorite junk food over here at Shecky’s? That good ol’ salty goodness known as the potato chip. But because we’re watching our figures for summer (it is bikini season after all!), we’ve decided to lose those crispy, crunchy, but often grease-filled fried snacks in favor of healthier, but no less delicious baked alternatives, swapping the standard spud for eggplant, zucchini, kale, beets, apples, squash and more. So go ahead ladies—skip the bag, skip the guilt and snack on with these tasty baked bites!
Baked Butternut Squash Chips with Parmesan Cheese
Do you ever have a craving for something sweet and something salty both at the same time? Well put down those milkshake-dipped French fries and swap it out for something more nutritious but equally delicious, like these Baked Butternut Squash Chips with Parmesan Cheese from A Couple Cooks. Sliced thin, boiled in hot water for two minutes, flavored with olive oil, kosher salt and parmesan cheese, then baked at 375 degrees, the natural sweetness of the squash perfectly balances with the salty bite of the cheese to satisfy your sweet and salt-loving tooth while snacking!
