crushed saltine crackers
water, as needed
acorn squash, halved and seeded
Loved this simple way to prepare acorn squash. I wondered what the crush saltines would do texture-wise to this dish. It baked up crunchy, chewy, sweet, salty and delicious. Due to a time crunch, I started the squash in the microwave with the cavities filled and microwaved for about 6 minutes. This made my small halves almost completely cooked. I then put them in a toaster oven at 350° to finish baking, about 15 minutes. My son ate the second half for his lunch the next day and I received a text that read "That squash was awesome!" Yep, that pretty much summed up the taste of this squash - awesome!
Exactly what I wanted!
I made it twice, the second time I increased the amount of saltines and I also added walnut pieces. Delicious.
