Description

You’ll love the warm aromas that waft through your kitchen with this side dish. And you’ll also love how low-maintenance this recipe is: slice, scoop, sprinkle, bake.

Ingredients

  • 1  Acorn Squash, Sliced In Half, Seeds And Fibers Removed
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter
  • 1-½ Tablespoon Light Brown Sugar
  • ½ teaspoons Cinnamon
  • ¼ cups Water

Preparation

1. Preheat the oven to 350 F.

2. Rub the flesh side of each half of the acorn squash with half of the butter (clumps are OK). Sprinkle each side with brown sugar and cinnamon.

3. Pour the water into the bottom of a baking dish. Add the acorn squash (cut side up) and cover dish with foil. Bake for 50 minutes.

4. Remove dish from the oven. Uncover it then put it back in the oven and bake for an additional 10 minutes (note: if there’s a lot of liquid pooling in the middle of the squash, you can spoon some of it out before putting it in the oven for the last 10 minutes). Remove it from the oven and set dish on a rack. Then let it cool before serving. Just dig away with a spoon! It’ll be very tender with hints of brown sugar and cinnamon throughout.
