I added a dash of nutmeg and a dash of cinnamon as well as the brown sugar and enjoyed this as a pseudo dessert. I don't know why I never used to eat squash... it's so yummy. :)

This was very good and very easy. I only had one squash that we got from a veggie co-op so I made it up for lunch instead of dinner (wanted to make sure we liked it before I made a dinner with it). It was wonderful. Even my niece who swears she hates squash of any kind, liked it. Thanks for sharing.

This is how my mother would prepare acorn squash when I was a child, except that we didn't mash it together- so yummy! Now as an adult, I prefer to steam them in the microwave (much faster) then put a little dab of butter inside the well along with the brown sugar and eat it as is.

This is super simple but very comforting and filling (and cheap!). We added a little butter along with the brown sugar and ate the squash directly out of the shells. Great, easy recipe.

Excellent. We're up to our ears in squash, because we get all our veggies from a local co-op and squash just reufuses to go out of season. It's nice to find simple but tasty ways to cook it that the kids don't revile.

This was a very nice basic recipe! I've never cooked acorn squashes before, and this gave me an idea what else is possible with this squash -- a great place to start with!

Love the brown sugar - I confess that I added a teaspoon of butter too. Using a fork I mashed the squash in the shell. Baked it for 1 hour (it was a bit large). Looked attractive and tasted great- Thanks Sarah for posting

This is a nice, very basic way to serve acorn squash. It is suitable for those who like squash on the sweet side, without complicated flavours. i'll post my slightly more involved recipe, but this versions a keeper for kids and others who don't like more seasoning.
