acorn squash, halved and seeded
salt and pepper to taste
firmly packed brown sugar
Another great recipe from Corwynn. A super side dish, too! On nights when I'm in a hurry I pierce the whole squash with a knife and microwave for 3 minutes. This makes it easier to halve and seed. Then I place it cut side down and microwave it for about 4 more minutes, then finish with the brown sugar and butter in the oven. Yummy!
Not something that I would ever make again. Certainly nothing special about it.
I made this at Christmas with my ham and it was a huge hit! I did take advice from other reviewers to cut oven time (which was occupied with ham and rolls)and use the microwave. I put them in 1/2 cup water face down in microwavable dish for 8 minutes. They were already really tender. Then I baked in oven for only 20 min. Perfect!
Very yummy for something different! I think next time I'll use a little less butter as the squash didn't soak it all up and it ended up leaking out into the pan and burning.
acorn squash is wonderful! for this recipe i simply baked the squash plain and then added a couple tablespoons of earth balance and agave nectar! yum!
I made this last night and served it along with Roast Pork with Maple and Mustard Glaze (also from this site), which was an excellent combination. I followed the recipe with the exception of decreasing the brown sugar and omitting the cinnamon. Followed the baking times exactly which cooked them perfectly for us. I cut mine in wedges before serving. The hardest part of this recipe is cutting the squash in half. LOL! But here’s a little tip – microwave the whole squash for 2 minutes on high. That will soften it just enough and will make it a little easier to cut in half using a large chef's knife.
mmmmm, this acorn squash dish is very tasty! made as directed except i basted the squash with the melted butter half way through the second baking stage. many thanks corwynn!
The only way to eat any kind of winter squash! I do prefer to leave the cinnamon out though.
