  • “I added a dash of nutmeg and a dash of cinnamon as well as the brown sugar and enjoyed this as a pseudo dessert. I don’t know why I never used to eat squash… it’s so yummy.:)”

  • “This was very good and very easy.I only had one squash that we got from a veggie co-op so I made it up for lunch instead of dinner (wanted to make sure we liked it before I made a dinner with it).It was wonderful.Even my niece who swears she hates squash of any kind, liked it.Thanks for sharing.”

  • “This is how my mother would prepare acorn squash when I was a child, except that we didn’t mash it together- so yummy!Now as an adult, I prefer to steam them in the microwave (much faster) then put a little dab of butter inside the well along with the brown sugar and eat it as is.”

  • “This is super simple but very comforting and filling (and cheap!). We added a little butter along with the brown sugar and ate the squash directly out of the shells. Great, easy recipe.”

  • “Excellent. We’re up to our ears in squash, because we get all our veggies from a local co-op and squash just reufuses to go out of season. It’s nice to find simple but tasty ways to cook it that the kids don’t revile.”

  • “This was a very nice basic recipe! I’ve never cooked acorn squashes before, and this gave me an idea what else is possible with this squash — a great place to start with!”

  • “Love the brown sugar – I confess that I added a teaspoon of butter too. Using a fork I mashed the squashin the shell. Baked it for 1 hour (it was a bit large).Looked attractive and tasted great- Thanks Sarah for posting”

  • “This is a nice, very basic way to serve acorn squash.It is suitable for those who like squash on the sweet side, without complicated flavours.i’ll post my slightly more involved recipe, but this versions a keeper for kids and others who don’t like more seasoning.”
