This is how my Mom prepared acorn squash growing up.

Acorn Squash with Brown Sugar

Acorn Squash with Brown Sugar

Serves 2 – 4 (2 halves or 4 quarters).

Ingredients:

1 acorn squash

1 tablespoon unsalted butter

1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon brown sugar

Directions:

Rinse the entire squash and place it in a baking dish, resting in about 1 inch of water.  Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.  Insert knife into squash to make sure it is cooked (knife should slide in easily).  Remove squash from oven and let cool slightly on a cutting board.  Cut squash in half and scoop out seeds and toss.  Top the acorn squash halves (or quarters) with butter and brown sugar.  Serve immediately.
