Roasted Acorn Squash with Brown Sugar and Cinnamon

Easy-frickin’-peasy. Squash, salt, butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, oven, plate. I feel weird even calling it a recipe.

  • Ingredients
  • 1 medium acorn squash, sliced lengthwise $1.50
  • salt Pantry
  • 2 tbsp butter cut into small cubes, divided $1 for a stick
  • 4 tbsp brown sugar, divided Pantry
  • ground cinnamon $1.50 for 1 oz.
Total Cost of Ingredients $4

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Use a spoon to scoop out the squash’s seeds and discard (or save and roast them a la pumpkin seeds).

Lightly salt the squash’s flesh.

Divide the cubes of butter between the 2 halves, placing it in in the center of each.

Top with the brown sugar and a dash of cinnamon.

Bake on an ungreased baking sheet for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until squash is soft and brown sugar/butter mixture is bubbly.

Serves 2.

This is one of our favorite fall/winter desserts! Try sprinkling a little bit of honey or maple syrup on top before you put it in the oven. It adds even more great depth of flavor.

The farmer’s market has many types of squash this time of year. Roasting it with just a little butter, cinnamon and brown sugar is the easiest technique to prepare it.This recipe would also work for carnival squash and butternut squash. To devour, comfortably mash it all around within the shell and revel in each chunk.
