Maple-Glazed Acorn Squash
Total TimePrep: 10 min. Bake: 55 min.
Very easy, very delicious!
Delicious and easy way to enjoy acorn squash! I've always basted mine with butter and honey, so was looking forward to using maple syrup and brown sugar. It did not disappoint! I didn't bake mine cut side down ~ I just put them in a casserole dish cut side up, added a little water to the dish, poured the glaze in the center of each squash half and baked them like that, basting occasionally. I did double the glaze and they came out perfect. Great fall dish!
Unfortunately, this was not a recipe that we will make again. The squash was nicely sweet but quite dry, even after adding extra butter. Maybe our squash was a little old?
We love winter squash and are always looking for new ways to make it. This was as delicious as it was easy. It was a little on the sweet side, so next time I will omit the brown sugar, and just use the maple syrup. VFE
Love Acorn Squash. Have made my version of this for many years but only used brown sugar , so will try it with Maple syrup added. I salt and pepper the squash cavity; pack with brown sugar and lay a couple of slices of bacon on top, end to end and bake/roast. The candied bacon alone is a REAL treat but the added flavor of bacon drippings in the melted brown sugar is a bonus!
I have never had acorn squash before because I do not like vegetables. I am trying to eat more veggies. I had my daughter (picky eater) help make this and we both liked it.

Very good... I also added about 2 Tablespoons melted butter.
