Paul’s Acorn Squash


My husbands favorite side dish, how do you go wrong with bacon and brown sugar??


  • 3 whole Acorn Squash
  • 6 Tablespoons Butter
  • 1-½ cup Brown Sugar
  • 6 slices Bacon, Thick Cut
  • 1 teaspoon Salt And Pepper, to taste


Cut squash in half and scoop out seeds. The end that has the tip or pointy part (technical term!) I cut off so that they sit flat. Cover a baking sheet with foil. Set the squash on the tray, add a slice of butter, 1/4 cup or so of brown sugar and a slice of bacon. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake at 375 for about 30 min. Or until the yellow flesh seems soft and pulls apart with a fork. For some reason it won’t let me add the finished picture… but they are beautiful when cooked. The kids will even love these and they are so easy! Enjoy!
