Yesterday I needed to bake up an acorn squash and wanted something different. Usually I make it with butter, honey and cinnamon.
Well I found a great recipe from Sunny Anderson on Food Network. I halved the recipe since I only had one squash.
1 acorn squash, sliced in 1/2, seeds removed
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg (love using fresh)
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
Assemble acorn squash on a baking sheet. Place 1 tablespoon of butter and brown sugar in each half. Add 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg in each and season with salt. Bake until golden and tender, about 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes, basting flesh of squash several times.
Mine only took about 50 minutes and they were perfectly roasted.
I really enjoyed this and definitely make this again.
