How to Make Delicious Acorn Squash!

by Cassia Valimohammad

A very simple way to make an easy side dish everyone will LOVE!


  • 2 Acorn Squash (2 large feed about 3-4 people)
  • Brown Sugar
  • Butter
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Cinnamon
  • Whole Milk (Optional)
  • Wax Paper or Foil
  • Gloves
  • Large Spoon
  • Cookie Sheet
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    This is an acorn squash. :) Two of these will feed roughly 3-4 people.

    Step 2

    Set oven to 400 degrees. Cover cookie sheet with foil or wax paper. (This step is to minimize clean-up.) Place squash on sheet and place in oven for approximately 1 hour.

    Step 3

    Pull-out when very soft to the touch. Squash will be VERY hot. (I recommend wearing gloves from this point on.) Cut squash in half.

    Step 4

    Remove seeds from squash with a spoon.

    Step 5

    Dump contents in large bowl and remove skin. Should peel right off due to the heat.

    Step 6

    Clean up by simply rolling up and tossing the foil or wax paper!

    Step 7

    Get ready to mix. Squash should look like this. :)

    Step 8

    Get out items to mix in. Cinnamon, butter, S & P, brown sugar, dash of whole milk (optional)

    Step 9

    Mix it all up! Put in ingredients to taste. I eye my measurements, so start slow. You can always add more. Soft enough to mix with a spoon. I prefer my Immersion Blender, but it not necessary.

    Step 10

    Yummo! Expect this side dish to be everyone's new favorite! And don't worry about telling them how easy it was. 😉 (That's between us.)
