Reviews for Maple-Glazed Acorn Squash
"Very good... I also added about 2 Tablespoons melted butter."
"This was great, and so easy! I added somw walnuts into the cavity after pouring in the saue. My daughter is looking forward to having this again!"
"Had this for supper. Enjoyed. Used real maple syrup so I think it was a little sweet. Next time I make this I will take a fork and prick the squash so the glaze has a chance to penetrate the squash."
"I used Elaine D's idea and grated some apple into the center for the last 15 minutes or so. It was really good!"
"Will probably use less sugar next time, but these were good."
"Love this , i grate an apple and add along with a pat of butter in eaxh half. Yum!"
"I am eating this now! There are only two of us and we eat small portions, so I halved this. It is so good! The remaing maple syrup-brown Sugar mixture, I poured over a ham steak. Thank you for a delicious supper!"
"These were pretty good. They weren't spectacular but they were good. We used more than one acorn squash and then cut them up into pieces when we were done so that a lot of people could enjoy them."
"Used butternut squash and cooked in microwave for 20 min, then oven for glaze. very good!"
"Excellent! I scooped out the squash andmashed it up because my kids wouldn't eat it like presented. I also sprinkled some nutmeg on and some chopped walnuts. Yummy!"
"My very picky eaters finally will eat squash!!!"
"When I cook acorn squash I always make a small slice off the bottom on the squash so it has a flat surface to sit on. This helps keep the yummy filling inside. You can also microwave the squash to soften and then finish it in the oven."
"Nothing fancy but packs great flavor. If you are tired of dressing up acorn squash this is by far the easiest and tastiest!"
"This was the first time we had Acorn Squash, but it wont be the last. It was delicious."
"my family loved this squash recipe!!"
