Baked Acorn Squash With Brown Sugar

Baked acorn squash recipe

Happy First Day of Fall! I'm celebrating the start of my very favorite season with one of my favorite fall recipes: Baked Acorn Squash with brown sugar and butter. You'll be surprised at just how easy it is to make.


Baked Acorn Squash

(serves 4)

2 acorn squash

1 tablespoon butter

2 tablespoons brown sugar


Cut squash in half lengthwise. Scoop out seeds and strings. Sprinkle salt in each half. Place halves in a baking dish, cut side up. Fill dish with 1/4-inch of water to keep squash from sticking to bottom.

Melt butter. Stir in brown sugar until it dissolves. Fill each squash cavity with butter-sugar mixture. Drizzle any remaining butter-sugar on halves. Bake in oven on 400 for about 60 minutes until squash is soft.
