Fall is here! Which means it’s time for squash. Acorn squash, in particular, has great flavor and only requires a small amount of prep time to create a delicious side dish.


2 acorn squash, halved and seeded
2 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp brown sugar or maple syrup
2 tsp rosemary, minced
2 tsp thyme, minced
1 tsp ground nutmeg
salt and pepper, to taste


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place acorn squash face up on a baking sheet. Evenly divide butter, brown sugar or maple syrup, rosemary, thyme, nutmeg, salt, and pepper and place in each half of squash. Roast in oven for 45 minutes to one hour. Squash is done when a fork is easily inserted into the flesh.
