With Fall just around the corner, here’s a great idea for a side veggie to accompany that hearty entree.
Baked Acorn Squash
- 2 acorn squash
- 4 pats of butter
- 4 teaspoons brown sugar
- 2 squares of aluminum foil
- PAM (or similar) cooking spray
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
Apply cooking spray to one side of both pieces of foil. Wrap each squash in a foil square – oiled side on the inside touching the squash.
Bake the squash for 1 hour until soft to the touch (like a baked potato).
Remove squash from oven, unwrap foil, and cut each into halves.
Scoop seeds from center of each half using a spoon. Put one pat of butter and one teaspoon of brown sugar into each hollowed-out cavity.
Put squash halves onto a cookie sheet and insert back into oven, cooking for an additional 20 minutes.
Remove from oven and serve immediately.
