I don't write a lot of reviews and I have been on allrecipes for years. However, I HAD to rate this because my husband hates squash but he absolutely loved this! At one point he even said he couldn't believe he was actually eating squash!
I followed the recipe as stated, except I don't own a jelly-roll pan, so I baked them on a cookie sheet lined (shiny side up) with heavy duty tin-foil and sprayed a generous amount of PAM cooking spray. (Emphasis on the "PAM" because I have found that off brand doesn't work as well for me.)
I also didn't have any fresh thyme. So I just used a tsp or two of dried. The amount of salt, pepper, and parm was perfect.
Baked 15 minutes on one side, flipped them over and baked them another 15 minutes. SO delicious.
I followed the recipe exactly and no one in my family would eat it. Bland with an unpleasant sweetness and mushy/crunchy and chewy textures at the same time. I can't see what I did wrong.
Both my husband and I decided this is probably the only way we want acorn squash. I followed the recipe to the letter and it was delicious.
This was amazing and hubby approved, definitely a keeper!
Quick, easy, tasty. I had always eaten winter squash by scooping the cooked flesh out of the rind, so I was confused about how one would eat this. If anybody else is wondering: You can eat these slices skin and all. Once you scrape out the seeds, you eat everything that goes into the oven.
This is absolutely delicious. It was my first time making acorn squash and it will now be in the regular rotation throughout fall. I didn't change a thing. Perfect!
This is a great way to prepare squash! Everyone I have made it for has loved it. It's also an inspired coating for other veggie. Try it on potato wedges; you'll love it!
This came out so good! My two toddlers and husband devoured it.
