Sweet & Salty Acorn Squash

Tonight I made acorn squash for the first time.  We loooved it.  The other day I read a few recipes online looking for something great to do with it and then I forgot to print anything out and all the sudden it was time to make dinner tonight so this is what I ended up with --we all ate it and liked it and Rob has requested I make it for Thanksgiving.

This recipe is super simple and easy (and involves a microwave so what could be bad about that?)  This recipe can be doubled, tripled...as many as you need.

Sweet & Salty Acorn Squash

1 acorn squash
salt & pepper
2 Tb butter
2 Tb brown sugar

Preheat oven to 420.  Rinse the squash and cut them in half.  Remove the seeds with a spoon and put the squash halves face down on a plate and microwave 7-10 minutes, the skin should be soft to the touch but not mushy.  Remove from the microwave and salt and pepper the squash well.  Put 1 Tb butter and 1 Tb brown sugar into each squash half and bake for 10 minutes. Once you remove this from the oven, use a spoon to drizzle the butter mixture all over the squash and cut into wedges for serving. Great with turkey!
