Acorn Squash

Here is another quick and healthy and easy and DO AHEAD recipe! I love this one because it's so easy and you can make these two or three days ahead and just warm them in the microwave before serving. Just double triple or what ever to feed as many people you are having . This recipe serves 2-4 if you cut them in half that's two if you quarter them it's four. The measurements are not exact just be sure each squash half gets a little of everything.

Baked Acorn Squash

brown sugar
salt and pepper

                                                   cut in half and scoop out insides, discard

into the cavity of each half, or quarter (if you want to make 4 smaller servings)
put a1 Tb. of butter, 1 Tb. of brown sugar and sprinkle with salt and pepper. The squash pictured on the left I used sugar free maple syrup for my husband who is diabetic.

Bake at 400 degrees covered for 40 min. and then uncovered for 10 min. till a little brown on the edges.
At this time you can cool them cover with plastic wrap and then just microwave for 6-8 min till hot through.
Yummy! they are like candy I make them all year, there great with the Glazed Ham we made in October.
