Sometimes you have to cook something that’s not meat, and this is probably one of the top options. Acorn squash is delicious with brown sugar and butter, and the pecans add a little extra awesomeness. You can cook this in the oven or on the BBQ.
Acorn Squash with Brown Sugar and Pecans
A real simple recipe with a real delicious finish.
Start by cutting the acorn squash in half
Clean out the seeds using a spoon
Slice cross hatches into the squash, but make sure you don't go too deep that you cut through
Cut that stick of butter in half and put one piece in each half of the squash
Grab 1/4 cup of chopped pecans and chop them up even finer. Then put them into the squash with the butter
Lastly, get 1/4 cup packed brown sugar and split it evenly between the two halves
Throw on the upper rack of your BBQ or in the oven at 350° (try to keep them as flat as possible and away from flame)
Cook until tender, probably about 30-40 minutes
