acorn squash (each about 28 ounces)
1 (28 ounce) can
BUSH'S® Vegetarian Baked Beans, drained
maple syrup or honey
dark brown sugar
This is great squash! I only made one and didn't cut off the bottom, and I waited to put the beans in until about 10 minutes before it was done (baked) so they wouldn't get dried out. Next time I'll leave out the little bit of margarine I put on top (couldn't really taste it) and I'll bake it longer so the squash is more tender. This would be good with chicken or pork or something, but I just ate it on it's own.
Good recipe, but the sodium content is sky-high (primarily from the canned baked beans). It's easy to make the same recipe with other bean mixtures that are much lower in sodium.
The best acorn squash recipe ever. Put it on the grill with a cover and let the skin char. It's totally wonderful.
I received this as my 'Daily Dish' via email last week. I thought it to be a very novel idea. We are NOT squash eaters but I decided to try it anyway. My husband thoroughly enjoyed it as did I. Beings it was so cold out I decided to use the oven to get a little heat in the house. Baked it at 350 for 1 hour as another reviewer suggested.
Put this in a dish that fit the squash, so didn't need to cut the bottom. Omitted the butter--not necessary and why put those fat calories in your body if you don't need to? Had too many baked beans to fit in the squash, so put them in a baking dish that I sprayed with non-stick spray. Baked at 350 for an hour (put the dish of beans in for about 30 minutes). This was a very tasty different way to serve squash. I served this with a chicken recipe that I also baked.
great presentation and delish! the only prob is that it's not a lot of room for much baked beans.
I followed the directions pretty closely, but it was undercooked. I covered the squash the whole time, which might have been the problem. My fiance disliked it. He said that he had no idea how to eat it and ended up just eating the beans. I thought the flavors went well together and if I cooked it longer it would probably be a lot better.
This was really very good. I don't think the butter/margarine was necessary ... I didn't taste it and it adds extra calories/fat, so I'll try it without next time, its a good way to get in vegetables, and I think I'll try someone elses suggestions of using non canned baked beans to reduce sodium content. Very good recipe though!
