  • Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Flip squash and sprinkle cinnamon into the center and dot with butter. Continue baking until flesh can be easily pierced with a fork, about 30 minutes more.

  • Scoop flesh into a bowl and mix in brown sugar until evenly combined.

Cook's Note:

If you would like something more savory, instead of cinnamon and brown sugar, other spices work well to, such as nutmeg or garlic. Whatever fits your taste!

The acorn squash has been on my kitchen table since mid October with other small pumpkins and gourds. I decided to roast it since I have never cooked acorn squash. This recipe was easy and delicious. My husband doesn't like squash but I put it on his plate with rice and chicken for dinner and he told me the sweet potatoes were excellent! Yay! I will make this again. Read More

Very simple acorn squash recipe but it was very tasty and a perfect fall side dish. It did not take a full hour for mine to cook but it could have been the size of my squash. Mine was completely soft at about 35-40 minutes. I also didn't use the full amount or salt or butter but again it probably was because of the size of my squash. I think you will just need to see how much flesh you get from the squash and decide on the quantity of the butter and salt you need to add so it isn't too salty or greasy. Thanks for the recipe!
