IntroductionThis is a tasty, simple recipe for any winter day to chase the blues from food network! This is a tasty, simple recipe for any winter day to chase the blues from food network!
3 acorn squash, about 1 1/2 pounds each, stems cut off
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened ( I only use 3 tblsp)
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
6 tablespoons honey
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Set the squash on its side and, with a large knife, cut in half vertically. Trim a piece off the bottom of each squash half so they will lie flat in the pan. Scrape out the seeds and stringy membranes with a large spoon. Place cavity side up in a large roasting pan.
Mix the butter, mustard, and honey in a small bowl until blended. Fill each squash cavity with 2 tablespoons of the butter mixture. Season with salt and pepper. Bake until the squash is very tender, 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Serves 6 at 1 half each.
Left overs: You could turn the cooked squash puree into a soup by adding vegetable or chicken stock to thin, then topping it off with some homemade rye, pita, or Parmesan croutons
