The Butternut Squash Hash Browns are the perfect replacement for the starchy counterpart. While not comparable to potatoes, the crispness of the squash delivers what is wanted from a popular morning offering. The hint of garlic powder gives these a delicious flavor that takes away the awkwardness for some that eating squash brings.
