acorn squash


I tried this recipe for acorn squash from The Pioneer Woman as a side with our turkey leftovers. It tasted like candy! We loved it, although in this pregnancy the texture of cooked squash wasn't working for me by bite 4, me so he happily are all of it!

Half each squash, then scrape out the seeds and stringy membranes.Sprinkle each half with salt.Add a generous tablespoon of butter to the center of each squash.Add 2 to 3 heaping tablespoons brown sugar.Drizzle squash with maple syrup.Pour 2 cups water in the bottom of the baking pan.

Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove foil and bake an additional 30-45 minutes, or until squash is golden brown. In the last 5 minutes of baking, turn on the broiler and allow tops to get a little more brown and the butter/sugar mixture to bubble.
Serve on a platter and share with Aunt Winifred.

My hubby grew up HATING squash because of the way it was prepared.. I made this dish for him once and now he LOVES squash! I make this VERY often. When fresh squash is out of season, I prepare my frozen squash with the same ingredients! YUM!
