unruhmissions , 2 years agoThis is great with Spaghetti Squash too if you can't get acorn.
HappyFrogie , 3 years agoJust the recipe I was looking for. Add some ground cloves and it's heaven in your mouth. The best part is that my toddler loves it and is pestering me to make it again!
sugarbiscuit , 3 years agoI didn't have acorn squash, so I just used yellow squash and it was still good. One thing I would suggest us to try it with cinnamon. I did and it was great.
rodgerj , 3 years agoMade this tonight and we loved it! Skipped the salt and pepper to keep the sodium down and it was still great.

anniem2 , 5 years agoI make a similar dish in the microwave, with chopped apples in the center, brown sugar on top. It is delicious.
KaryAnca , 5 years agoThis is vegan ONLY IF the butter is replaced with a non-dairy alternative (e.g. a soy margarine, like Earth Balance).
dshill , 5 years agoI substituted sucanat for the brown sugar and spiced with cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg. Instead of mixing the butter, I just added a pat on top of the sucanat and spice mixture. It's very simple and tasted fantastic. We drizzled a little maple syrup on top.
daphnexduck , 6 years agoI've found cooking acorn squash is very easy in a microwave. Place cut side down on a plate and cook on high until soft. Time depends on power and size of squash - about 6-8 minutes for one half. Turn right side up and prick flesh or stir up in shell. Add salt, pepper, butter, brown sugar and reheat to melt, or lite maple syrup to save calories.
cajuntoast , 8 years agoThis is a classic! This was the first time I tried brown sugar (I usually use maple syrup) and I thought it was great.

frankmcc , 9 years agoIt is prepared nearly exactly the way my family has eaten it since childhood- and our mother never seemed to write down her recipes so we all bake it the way we remember it!
