Baked Acorn Squash with Brown Sugar and Butter

We had an odd football gathering the other night. The menu consisted of ribs, guacamole, rosemary and garlic potatoes and this dish. I guess they kind of went together.  

Quick and easy. Filling and healthy. Even with all of the butter and sugar. Right?

Ingredients

1 acorn squash, cut in 1/2

2 tablespoons brown sugar

2 tablespoons butter, softened

2 tablespoons maple syrup

Salt

Freshly ground black pepper

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Directions:

Scoop the seeds and stringy pulp out of the squash cavities and discard. In a small mixing bowl, combine the brown sugar, butter, syrup and salt and pepper, to taste. Rub the squash cavities and cut sides of the squash with the butter mixture and place them on a baking sheet, cut side up. Bake in the preheated oven for about 1 hour until the squash is tender when pierced with a fork. Serve 1 half per person.
