Sweet Roasted Acorn Squash

This year I decided to try a lot of new things for Thanksgiving dinner. Now I had the Acorn Squash once before a few weeks ago and liked it but this was my first time making it. For those who have never had an acorn squash before, this dish tastes just like a slice of pumpkin pie. Now the stuffing in the middle is just just stove top stuffing, nothing fancy. So I will just type in the recipe for the acorn squash.

  • 1 acorn squash, cut in quarters, seeds removed
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Place squash on a baking sheet cut side up. Place 1/2 Tbsp of butter and brown sugar in each slice. Add 1/8 tsp of nutmeg in each and season with salt. Bake until golden brown and tender, about 30- 45 minutes, basting flesh of squash several times. Serve warm.
