Recipe of the Week: Roasted Acorn Squash

Now that we are beginning to get into the fall season, it’s time to have some winter squash!


  • 1 acorn squash (cut in half, and seeded)
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 1/2 tbsp maple syrup
  • Pinch of salt (to taste)
  • Ground black pepper (to taste)


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Place both halves of the squash on a lined baking pan (cut side down).
  • Bake for ~30 minutes.
  • Remove from oven. Turn the squash over and rub the inside of the squash with the brown sugar/butter mixture and put it in the oven again, cut side up this time.
  • Bake for another 20 minutes. Remove from oven and oven and eat out of the halved acorn squash or cut it into slices!
