Baked Acorn Squash

Baked Acorn Squash takes very little prep to make a very tasty healthy side dish.


  • Acorn Squash
  • Butter
  • Maple Syrup
  • Brown Sugar


  1. Preheat Oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Cut squash in half – Remove seeds
  3. Cut a flat area on the back side of each side so the squash can sit on cookie sheet without tilting over – do not cut all the way through the rind.
  4. Score the inside of the squash creating about ½ squares – do not cut all the way to rind
  5. Rub the inside and rim of each half with pad of butter – leaving remainder butter in the bottom of the squash
  6. Add ~1 1/2 table spoons of brown sugar to each half
  7. Add ~1 1/2 table spoons maple syrup to each half
  8. Swirl the mixture around inside to coat the sides
  9. Bake on cookie sheet 1 hour (you may want a little Pam or oil on the pan so the squash does not get stuck to it)
