Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

This is the best way to eat most winter squash. Adding a little cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice or pumpkin pie spice makes this super yummy. Also a dollop of fat free whipped topping seems like you're having a warm comforting dessert! Submitted by:

My variation is to use sugar free pancake syrup and a few chopped walnuts instead of the Smart Balance and brown sugar. Hubby also likes raisins in his and has asked for this side for Thanksgiving. He never liked acorn squash until I started fixing it for him this way. This changes make it a 5 star! Submitted by:

My kids love this as the butter and brown sugar make it sweet enough they don't realize what they are eating. My husband and I love it as well. Submitted by:

Did you know you can poke holes in the squash and microwave it a few minutes to soften it. Then it is easier to cut in half to scoop out and add the butter or light spread and the brown sugar. Cinnamon is also a great addition.
My mom used to make this. We loved it.

I filled an 8X8 pan with the Acorn squash cut into chunks! I used cinnamon/sugar mixture on top of the squash - made my kitchen smell like baked apples!...served alone or with Vanilla Yogurt and Granola! (Vanilla Ice Cream works too : ) Submitted by:

This is my favorite way to eat Acorn Squash, but I use the Brown Sugar Splenda blend. Submitted by:

My Mom always made it like that. I prefer to peel the squash and boil it like potatoes and then mashing them adding a little brown sugar and I can't believe its not butter and mixing it all up. Hard part is peeling the squash. But it is delicious. Submitted by:

I have made this before too and we all love it at my house :)

I usually bake it cut side up and have used light maple syrup in place of the brown sugar at times too.

If you are not sure if you like acorn squash you HAVE to make this recipe. It was amazing! Simple, easy and delicious. The brown sugar turns into a thin candy like shell on the squash. My non-veggie loving husband ate every bite. Submitted by:
