I love all kinds of squash but this lately has become a favorite. Great side dish to any meal. In my opinion, it could be a a dessert. Yes, it’s that good. This would replace sweet potatoes on my table every time.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Wash and dry the acorn squash. Carefully cut the squash in half. Use a sharp chefs knife to cut your squash. Easiest way is to the squash in the indentation line. Scoop out seeds and place in a casserole dish.
1 Tablespoon butter for each squash cavity
Brown sugar* enough to fill and pack squash cavity
Put butter in squash cavity. Pack with brown sugar. Bake for one hour. Let rest a few minutes before handling. Eat and enjoy!
You can place the squash next to each other for stability.
*I did use brown sugar Splenda once and it was also delicious.
