Love Acorn Squash. Have made my version of this for many years but only used brown sugar , so will try it with Maple syrup added. I salt and pepper the squash cavity; pack with brown sugar and lay a couple of slices of bacon on top, end to end and bake/roast. The candied bacon alone is a REAL treat but the added flavor of bacon drippings in the melted brown sugar is a bonus!

I have never had acorn squash before because I do not like vegetables. I am trying to eat more veggies. I had my daughter (picky eater) help make this and we both liked it.

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!

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.
