How do You Cook Acorn Squash in the Oven?

  • Author: Bobby


Oven-Roasted Acorn Squash (2 Servings)


  • One acorn squash halved, seeds removed
  • Two tablespoons softened butter
  • One tablespoon brown sugar, packed
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • Kosher salt


  1. Set the oven to preheat at 400F, and while you wait, spread the butter in each half of the squash.
  2. Mix the cinnamon and brown sugar in a bowl, and add a pinch of kosher salt. Combine the mixture thoroughly.
  3. Generously sprinkle the mixture on the squash halves, and place them with the cut side facing upwards on a baking sheet.
  4. Toss the sheet in the oven and roast for about an hour. The acorn squash should be ready when the flesh pierces and shreds quickly with a fork.
