Sweet Acorn Squash

I had no idea Acorn Squash really even existed until my father-in-law served it to me years ago!  Ever since then, I've been making it for my family.  We're all big fans here!

Acorn Squash is so good on its own that it really doesn't take much to make it even better!  HOWEVER, I've found a way!  You're welcome!  LOL  And really, this couldn't get ANY easier.  You will WOW your family with this one with very little effort, I swear!  So, get them eating their's the recipe for you:

P.S.  You can easily double this recipe, but we didn't want leftovers and I was using my 2.5 Quart Crock from my duo, and no more would fit! ;)

Sweeet Acorn Squash

1 Acorn Squash, cut in half, seeds removed.
2 Tbsp. Butter, divided
2-4 Tbsp. brown sugar, divided

Cut your squash in half and remove the seeds. Poke some holes in it with your fork so it can absorb some of the extra yumminess that's about to go in it!

Cut a slice off the bottom so they sit in your crock level,.

Put a slice of butter in each.

Sprinkle each with brown sugar. Get the rims too!

Place them in your crock.

Cook on LOW for 7-10 hours or on HIGH for 4-5 hours.
When they come out, they will look like this.

Break it up and mix it right in the skin and serve it!

  1. Just put one in. I put a cinnamon stick in, too, to make it smell really nice. :)
