As fall fills the air, we begin turning our ovens back on to embrace and savor the ingredients of the season.  I simply adore so many varieties of winter squash, especially acorn squash.  I love roasting with just the perfect amount of savory and sweet depicted in the classic recipe below. Serve as a side with roasted pork tenderloin and wild rice. Enjoy!

Baked Acorn Squash

Servings 4
Author Chef Tiffany Blackmon

Ingredients

  • 2 medium acorn squash, halved lengthwise and seeded
  • Olive oil
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, diced
  • 6 tbsp. brown sugar, firmly packed
  • ½ tsp. ground cinnamon
  • Kosher salt & freshly ground pepper, to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  • Brush the sides and flesh of squash with olive oil. Arrange squash halves, cut side down, on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake in preheated oven until slightly tender, about 25-30 minutes. Remove from oven. Carefully, turn squash halves flesh side up.
  • In a small bowl combine brown sugar, and cinnamon. Evenly divide butter among squash halves. Sprinkle with brown sugar mixture, salt and pepper.
  • Return to oven. Bake at 400°F until squash is easily pierced with a fork, about 20 minutes, or until tender. Serve warm.

Notes

Tiffy’s Tips
~To make acorn or butternut squash easier to cut in half, microwave the entire squash for 1 to 2 minutes on HIGH. This will soften the squash for slicing. After microwaving, cut the squash in half lengthwise; remove and discard seeds with a fork or spoon.
