      I have nuked squash before, but only with the brown sugar/butter combo. The addition of honey does give it an extra touch. I used buttercup squash in place of the acorn. Buttercup is very similar, but a bit on the drier/fluffier side. I also added a few slices of onion, just because. :) Thanks morgainegeiser for a wonderful switch to microwave squash. I'll be using the honey method from now on. Made for the Auzzie/NZ Recipe Swap #33

      This was great, and much faster than baking it in the oven. I cut the recipe in half (since it was just me and my husband), and I didn't measure the brown sugar, butter, honey, salt, or pepper (I just kinda eyeballed it). I used a 9" Pyrex pie plate for the dish and didn't cover it (I'm a rebel), and it worked great; the cooking times are right on. This is my second time making and eating acorn squash, and it was lovely. Thanks for posting this recipe.
