  • 1 acorn squash - medium size
  • GLAZE:
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons butter (or margarine) - melted
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons brown sugar
Container: Microwave-safe baking dish or large bowl
15 mins
30 mins
  • Cut squash in half and remove seeds and stringy fibers. Pierce the skin in several places and place in a microwave-safe baking dish or bowl with cut sides down or facing the sides of the bowl. Cover with plastic wrap, leaving a small opening along the edge to allow steam to escape.
  • Cook in the microwave on high for 10 to 20 minutes. Pierce with a fork to check for doneness. Cook for additional time if not at desired tenderness.
  • GLAZE: While squash is cooking, mix glaze by adding melted butter, brown sugar and salt. Cook in the microwave until ingredients are well combined and have started to thicken.
  • When squash is done in the microwave, place the halves cut side up on a large baking sheet. Drizzle the glaze mixture over the edges and in the cavity of the squash halves. Place the squash under the broiler for 5 to 7 minutes until the glaze has caramelized. If necessary, cut into smaller serving sizes and serve while hot.
