Make Thanksgiving a little bit easier with this simple glazed squash recipe. There's no need to gather a dozen different ingredients and spend hours fussing over this vegetable dish! You just need two acorn squashes, a half cup of brown sugar, and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. The brown sugar makes the squash sweet enough that even the pickiest of eaters will be asking for seconds, while the hands-off baking time lets you focus on more complicated main dishes. That's why glazed squash has become one of our staple fall side dishes!

Yields5 Servings
Prep Time15 minsCook Time50 minsTotal Time1 hr 5 mins
 2 acorn squashes (between 1 and 2 pounds, halved and seeded)
 salt (to taste)
 pepper (to taste)
 ½ cup brown sugar
1

Preheat the oven to 350° F.

2

Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray and place the squash halves on it, cut side down. Bake at 350° F for 30 minutes. Let the squash cool until it can be easily handled. Peel the squash and cut into bite-sized pieces.

3

Preheat oven to 400° F. Cover your baking sheet with foil and spray with cooking spray (the sugar will get very sticky and this will make clean-up easier). Spread the squash over the foil and sprinkle with salt & pepper, then top with half the brown sugar. Bake at 400° F for 5 minutes.

4

Toss the squash, sprinkle with more salt & pepper and add the remaining brown sugar on top. Bake at 400° F 15-20 minutes until bites are tender.
