Roasted Acorn Squash


I have taken a post labelled Thanksgiving Recipes and made each recipe in there its own post. This is a great recipe for a holiday or any other time. It's economical and one squash can serve 4-6 people easily.
  • Whole Acorn Squash
  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 2 tbsp. light brown sugar
  • 1/8 tsp. cinnamon
  •  pinch of ground nutmeg                

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Cut the acorn squash in half and remove the seeds.
  3. In a microwave safe dish, melt the butter.  Add in the sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg and stir to combine.
  4. Fill each half with some of the mixture and using a pastry brush, coat the inside and rims of the squash with the mixture.
  5. Place on a foil lined baking sheet and cover with foil, making a tight seal.
  6. Bake for approximately 1 - 1 1/2 hours until the squash is fork tender.  Serve 1/2 per person or cut in slices after baking.
