Acorn Squash

I’m getting ready to head out of town for the holidays so I’m trying to eat all the food in my frige. I got an acorn squash in my last box so I decided to fix it for dinner last night. I LOVE squash but I usually just bake it and eat it plain and that’s too boring for a cooking blog. So this is what I came up with!

Only three ingredients! Super quick and easy!  This recipe is from


My squash was a little on the small side so I didn’t use quite as much of the ingredients.

IMG_1449I also think I over cooked it a little.  I did what the recipe said for a normal sized squash. It was still good though.

1 tablespoon butter

2 tablespoons brown sugar

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. Turn acorn squash upside down onto cookie sheet.  Bake in a 350 degree oven until it begins to soften, approximately 30 to 45 minutes.

3. Remove squash from the oven and turn onto a plate so that the flesh is facing upwards.  Place butter and brown sugar into the squash, and place remaining squash  over the other piece.  Place squash in a baking dish.

4. Place squash in the 350 degree oven and bake another 30 minutes.  Remove, spoon squash from skin and serve.
