I usually pair this sweet side dish with meatloaf and baked potatoes...a real comfort meal (especially since all three bake simultaneously!).


  1. Place squash in 11x7-inch baking dish.
  2. Dot 1 tbsp.
  3. butter in each squash half.
  4. Evenly sprinkle brown sugar and cinnamon in squash halves.
  5. Add enough water to baking dish to just cover the bottom of the pan; cover with aluminum foil.
  6. Bake at 350º for 1 hour, until squash is tender.
  7. Serve with additional brown sugar if desired.

I found this recipe on the internet several years ago and have made it many times since. I make it exactly as posted. I have also used butternut squash. It is very good with baked ham or turkey at your holiday meals. Thank you for posting this keeper recipe!
