Maple Acorn Squash is an amazingly simple side dish.


1   acorn squash

2 teaspoons butter

1   tablespoon pure maple syrup





Heat oven to 350°. Cut acorn squash in half; remove seeds and fibrous pulp.

Place squash cut side up on a lightly greased baking dish. Bake 25 minutes.

Remove from the oven, turn right side up and place 1 teaspoons of butter in the cavity of each squash and drizzle ½ tablespoon of maple syrup into each cavity and on the edges of the squash.

Sprinkle with salt and pepper as desired, and add a dash of nutmeg to each squash.

Place in the oven for 5-10 minutes to melt butter and meld flavors. Serve immediately.
