Our garden was abundant with acorn squash this year.
Fortunate for us our little guy likes this as well as we do.
I used to prepare my squash (acorn, butternut, spaghetti…) by cutting in half and removing seeds. Then I would place it in a glass dish face down with a little water and cook in the oven.
It changed my life once I read that you can cook any of these squash by piercing with a knife and baking them whole.
Now, I line a cookie sheet with foil and bake all my squash at once whole!
Once they are done, I split them and scrap my seeds.
Our favorite way to enjoy acorn squash with our little guy is smooshed with butter and cinnamon.
I can’t wait to make the next batch. I think they will be halved and filled with maple granola and drizzled with honey!
