Recipe type: Side Dish
Cuisine: American
Serves: 2
  • 1 Meyer Farms Organic Acorn squash
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup
  • ¼ teaspoon grated nutmeg
  • dash of salt
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Cut the acorn squash in half, lengthwise, from stem to end. Use a spoon to scoop out the seeds. Score the insides several times with a knife.
  3. Place each half on a baking sheet, cut side up.
  4. Add a little water to the bottom of the baking sheet to prevent burning. Coat inside of the squash with butter, brown sugar, maple syrup, grated nutmeg, and salt.
  5. Bake in oven for 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes, until the squash is very soft and the tops are browned.
  6. Let cool a little before serving and spoon any sauce onto exposed areas.
