Microwave Acorn Squash


  We are all fans of acorn squash and so any recipe for it usually gets tried. This recipe sounded a little different with the honey, and of course done in the microwave makes it a fast way to have a vegetable.
  I have fixed squash in the microwave before and it works quite well. One thing they do not tell you that I usually do, is to microwave it for about 2 minutes, piercing it in two or three places before you cut it open to remove the seeds. Sure makes cutting it open a lot easier. 
  This recipe from the Taste of Home Busy Family Favorites will become one of your favorites also. If you have any leftover, scoop it out of the shell and store in the refrigerator. It warms up very well. I usually add a pat of butter when I warm it up.
Microwave Acorn Squash
2 medium acorn squash
¼ cup packed brown sugar (I used a tablespoon per squash)
4 tablespoons butter (one per squash)
4 teaspoons honey (1 teaspoon each)
Pinch of salt and pepper per squash
  Cut squash in half; discard seeds. Place squash cut side down in a microwave-safe dish. Cover with plastic wrap and microwave on high for 10 - 12 minutes or until tender.
  Turn squash over; cut side up, and fill the centers with butter, brown sugar, honey and salt and pepper sprinkled over all. Cover again and heat for 2 -3 minutes or until the butter melts and the sugar and honey are warm.
