Acorn Squash With Cinnamon and Cranberries
I am excited about this week’s theme of Squashin’ Winter!! We love squash any which way!!! I also don’t think to cook it enough maybe because I need lots of really good recipes. Well, #SundaySupper has really helped out with that!!
It didn’t take me long to think of what I wanted to do with squash though this week. This Acorn Squash With Cinnamon and Cranberries was just the thing! I just had to think back to a couple of weeks ago when we were invited to our dear friends’ home for Thanksgiving dinner.
My family loved every morsel of food that I consumed that night!! I longingly thought back at the amazing acorn squash that my girlfriend Nan had made.
This is my favorite way to have them but I have never had them with cranberries and I haven’t had acorn squash forever and I adore it!!!
This recipe is so simple and lets the squash shine!!
It is also so festive looking with amazing colors!!
Although this recipe is great for a special occasion it so easy for any night. Bump up your everyday meals to another level with this delicious squash recipe. Your family will love you for it. ENJOY!!
- 1 Acorn squash
- 2 Tbsp. butter
- 2 Tbsp. brown sugar
- Cranberries, fresh or frozen
- Preheat oven to 350F. Wash and slice acorn squash in half, remove the seeds, and scrape clean.
- Slice off a small amount on the underside if needed to have the squash sit properly. Poke holes in the flesh with a fork.
- Sprinkle with cinnamon, add 1 Tbsp butter and 1 Tbsp. brown sugar to each half.
- Add about a dozen cranberries to each half. Wrap the halves individually and tightly with foil.
- Repeat with more squash if needed. If you have a large amount of other food, reserve 1/4 squash per person if less than 1/3 per person.
- Bake for 1 hour until the squash is very tender.
- Carefully unwrap the foil and slice each half in thirds or quarters and divide cranberries among each slice.
