This is our favorite way to prepare acorn squash. It is sooooo good on a cold night and goes with anything!
Cut squash in half and scoop out seeds. The end that has the tip or pointy part (technical term!) I cut off so that they sit flat. Cover a baking sheet with foil.
Cover a baking sheet with foil. Set the squash on the tray, add a slice of butter, 1T or so of brown sugar and a piece of bacon. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Bake at 375 for about 30 min. Or until the yellow flesh seems soft and pulls apart with a fork.
They are beautiful when cooked. The kids will even love these and they are so easy!
