Recipe: Pecan-Brown Sugar Acorn Squash

This is sooooooo yummy! I love butter, brown sugar and pecans…. This is so easy….and sooo good… your guests will love this! This makes roughly 4 servings… but keep in mind if you make this for a holiday dinner or buffet, you will have plenty of other foods… so this will probably feed more than 4… guests will probably take one slice instead of two.


Pecan-Brown Sugar Acorn Squash Recipe

All you need:

1 large acorn squash (about 2 pounds)
¼ cup pecan pieces
½ cup orange juice
2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon margarine or butter (I use butter)
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon

All you need to do:

Cut the squash lengthwise and clean out the seeds and fibers.

Cut each half crosswise into ½ inch slices. (You will probably get 4 slices per side for a total of 8)

Heat pecans in a 12 inch skillet over medium heat, stirring occasionally until they are light brown.

Remove the pecans from the skillet.

Mix the orange juice, brown sugar, butter and cinnamon in the skillet.

Put the acorn squash into the skillet.

Heat to boiling, then reduce heat.

Cover and simmer for 10 minutes, then turn the squash over.

Cook and simmer for 5 to 8 minutes or until squash is tender.

Arrange squash on a serving platter slightly overlapping one another.

Pour the glaze over the squash slices.

Sprinkle with the pecan pieces and serve.

Makes approximately 4 servings.
