1 medium sized acorn squash
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons brown sugar
salt and pepper to taste
1. Cut the acorn squash in half. Using a spoon, scoop out the seeds.
**Hint: Use a grapefruit spoon to scoop out the seeds, it makes it much easier.
2. Coat each acorn squash with 1/2 tablespoon of butter. Add 1 tablespoon of brown sugar to each squash, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, and salt and pepper to taste.
3. In a 400 degree F oven, place the acorn squash in the oven for about 1 hour, or until the insides are soft and the top is golden brown.
4. Use a fork to scoop out the insides, or serve half of the squash on each plate for a nice presentation. The butter will melt to the middle and will be a good dipping sauce for the squash.
I served it with dill salmon and french cut beans. Yum!
Until next time...
