Baked Acorn Squash is one vegetable I look forward to every fall. There are many ways to fix Acorn Squash but my favorite is so simple. I add brown sugar and butter to mine for what I think is a fabulous flavor.

Put the squash back into the oven for 20

pan as the butter will be in a puddle and hot.

Carefully pour the butter into a medium bowl.

Scrape out the insides of the squash with a

spoon being careful not to break the skin.

Place the squash into the bowl with

the butter, discarding the outer skin.

    Baked acorn squash is a family favorite. I have gotten into the habit of microwaving the squash.

    If you have gotten into the convenience of microwaving acorn squash or have not prepared acorn squash, I urge you to give Diane’s recipe a try.

    This recipe reminds me that nothing beats the flavor that oven baking over microwaving adds to food.
