Simple, earthy squash becomes a rich, satisfying dish with the help of goat cheese and Georgia pecans. For best results, use real maple syrup instead of its imitation.
Heat oven to 375F. Sprinkle inside of squash halves with salt and brush with melted butter. Turn upside down on baking sheet and bake 30 minutes.
Stir together pecans, maple syrup and thyme. Turn squash upright on baking sheet. Reserving about 3 tablespoons pecan mixture, fill hollow of each squash with remaining pecan mixture. Slice goat cheese crosswise into four equal rounds. Place a round of cheese in hollow of each squash and sprinkle with reserved pecan mixture. Bake 10 minutes more. Drizzle with more syrup as desired and serve.
