Why I Love This Recipe

I was watching PBS the other day & this recipe came from America’s Test kitchen.

Ingredients You'll Need

Acorn squash
3 TB butter
3 TB brown sugar
dash salt
plastic wrap


To prepare: Cut in half.

May halve by inserting a bench scraper into squash & hit with a rubber mallet.

Scoop out seeds & strings. Add some water in the bottom of your microwave able dish. Cover with plastic wrap & bake on high 15-25 minutes.

Then add 3TB butter & 3TB brown sugar to the tops of the squash, spread it around., then let it roll off into the cavity.

Add a dash of salt.

Broil in oven, 6” away from the heating element, to let it glaze.

Broil for 5-8 minutes, in the oven to finish up.

Questions, Comments & Reviews

This is how I fix mine, sometimes for a touch more flavor I sprinkle some cinnamon or nutmeg on them.
