Baked Brown Sugar Acorn Squash

Tis the season for warm, acorn squash!

This recipe makes a great side dish on a cool Autumn night…I made this because I love all types of squash. Add a little brown sugar and butter and man this is oh so good! Your family will love it!

Here is what you will need:

1 acorn squash, mine was average size, good for 2 or 3

2 tablespoons brown sugar

2 tablespoons butter

cinnamon, to taste

salt and pepper to taste

olive oil, for drizzling

Once again, you may use more butter, brown sugar, whatever you like…

Rinse your acorn squash well, and slice in half. Place cut side up on a foil lined baking pan. In a small bowl, mix your brown sugar, and cinnamon, set aside. For the butter make sure it’s room temperature, and spread on top of each acorn squash. Then sprinkle on your brown sugar and cinnamon mixture. Use as much as you like. Drizzle with olive oil, and salt and pepper to your liking. Cover with foil and bake at 350F until squash is soft, tender, and butter is bubbly. If your squash needs more or less time, check on it. Mine took about an hour.  You may then serve the acorn squash alone and eat it right in it’s skin, or scoop it out in a bowl, and serve on your table to enjoy with your family!

You may add more toppings like pecans, fresh herbs if you like, but I like mine nicely sweetened with sugar and cinnamon! So does my son ;o) Enjoy!
