- 1 whole Acorn Squash
- 2 Tablespoons Butter
- ¼ cups Brown Sugar
- 1 dash Salt
- 1 dash Cayenne Pepper
- 2 slices Bacon (cooked)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Cut the squash in half and scoop the seeds and pulp out with a large spoon. Place the two halves of the squash open-side down in a baking dish. Add about a quarter inch of water to the pan. Your goal is to steam the squash.
Bake the squash for 30 minutes.
Remove the partially cooked squash from the oven and drain the water. Flip the halves over so that the open side is now on the top.
To each squash add the butter (cold is fine, it will melt), brown sugar, salt and cayenne pepper. Crumble the bacon and sprinkle it over the top.
Bake the squash for an additional 30 minutes. Serve warm.
