Sweet Roasted Acorn Squash


  • 2 acorn squash, sliced in 1/2, seeds removed
  • 2-4 Tbsp butter
  • 4 Tbsp dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • Salt
  • 2 tsp raw cane sugar


Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. 

Assemble acorn squash on a baking sheet. Place 1 tablespoon of butter and brown sugar in each half. Add 1/8 teaspoon of nutmeg in each and season with salt. Bake until golden and tender, about 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes, basting flesh of squash several times.

Twenty minutes before the squash is done, sprinkle edges with raw sugar. Serve squash warm.
