Loved this simple way to prepare acorn squash. I wondered what the crush saltines would do texture-wise to this dish. It baked up crunchy chewy sweet salty and delicious. Due to a time crunch I started the squash in the microwave with the cavities filled and microwaved for about 6 minutes. This made my small halves almost completely cooked. I then put them in a toaster oven at 350 to finish baking about 15 minutes. My son ate the second half for his lunch the next day and I received a text that read "That squash was awesome!" Yep that pretty much summed up the taste of this squash - awesome!

Exactly what I wanted! I made it twice the second time I increased the amount of saltines and I also added walnut pieces. Delicious. Thanks!

It was good. I think next time I will reduce the butter. It seem at little much. I will make this again.
