Roasted Acorn Squash

Roasted Acorn Squash

This is an acorn squash, but you can use these instructions for any type. Just adjust cooking time for the size.


  • 1 acorn squash
  • 1 tsp. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. brown sugar
  • butter (or Smart Balance)
  • salt


  1. Cut squash in half. Remove seeds.
  2. Brush cut side with olive oil and place face down in a heavy roasting pan.
  3. Bake at 375 for 30 minutes (+ or – based on size). It is ready when you can insert fork.
  4. Season to taste- we like with a little butter, a sprinkling of brown sugar (don’t use too much), and a dash of salt. The roasting brings out the delicious flavor of the squash. This is a great winter treat!
